Doesn't your 90 Coupe have a lockable rear diff?????????
Square button on the transmission console - this should lock
the rear diff until you are going >25mph.
If you tried that and still got bad results maybe the locking
isn't working.

Also, even with Quattro and locked rear diff, traction in really
slippery conditions will eventually be a function of tyres.
