So far this winter performance (or a lack of thereof) I can best describe as being more comparable to my old front wheel drive Passat B6 on stock all season tires than Quattro on all-seasons. Traction control light went crazy in my bimmer just the way it would in Passat. I don’t even remember seeing this light in Audi. Yet again some say, in some cars it engages silently anyways without any indication on the dash.

Anywho, since the vast majority of us here blame the stock tires; that’s prolly what’s causing it.
I drove thru 4" of snow with all X-drive and OEM Conti tires, never saw the traction light came on at all.
