Advise for snow driving

Newbee greetings from snowy Carolina!

Well, us North Carolians don't experience much snow, but as I post this, we
have been getting 5+ inches today. This is the first snow I experienced in my
200tq, and had to run an errand after about 3 inches had fallen.  Coming home
in the unattended neighborhood streets, I took the turn into my culdasac in
1st gear, and ended up sliding into the curb.  Will be going to the shop on
Monday for that alignment!!!!

I have Dunlop D60 A2 with only about 10K on them, Now, I may have taken the
corner too fast (thought I was going appropriately slow) but take that
possible reason out of the question, do I have crappy M&S tires?  I recall
them being having an "A" rating in that catagory.  Should I press the quattro
button between the seats for most/any snow travel below the 20 something MPH
threshold it automatically disengages?  

I would appreciate any other snow driving tips for around the town on
two/four lane medium size city streets (population 100K), both offensive and
defensive!  .
