Yes there has been a time or two i've used chains with the quattro--but this
was before good M+S tires.  No you cannot put chains on all 4 corners--there
isn't enough room to the rear fender lip on most Audis, so fronts only.
 Also, on many Audis, chains are only *supposed* :) to be used on the smaller
winter tire sizes (i.e.on the 4kcsq  175/70-14 instead of 195/60-14, on the
'91 200q  195/65-15 instead of 215/60-15).  as you might guess, i didn't
follow those instructions too well, but ... no problems.
