well if thats tue.....then its just plain dumb on audis part. If the 
technology wasnt there for EDL up front, then they shoulve just made it 
lockable vie button or knob. otherwise, what good is it in the snow with one 
open and the rears being torque sensing? certanly not worthy of being called 
a  true quattro in my opinion.Allan
