As alarming as this can be, being Audi i'm a bit more confident in that this will still be a good system. Just need to test it out for myself along with seeing feedback from those that do get behind the wheel.

The new Q2 is FWD as is BMW and others. Just a sign of the times. In truth, as I now know from Roger, our Q3s are front wheel drive nearly 100% of the time. The Quattro is really just a badge, kinda like S-Line.

This is NOT quite true and I wouldn't think of it that way - it's WAY too simplistic, and if you really do think so,then you might as well save the $2K and get a FWD Q3 to start with ...

No way, I want all the gadgets! But you did say our Quattro is FWD 95% of the time.

Sure, Me too - but quattro is still MUCH more than a mere badge ...
