BTW my concern with going with RWD is getting stuck on the hills and steep residential roads around Bellevue. Had an '06 325i a few years ago and got stuck on Somerset in the snow...same car had trouble a few years later getting up my driveway. The A4 did great in the snow, just not when it came to stopping...slid over my dad's bushes coming into the driveway, LOL.
DTC comes down like a hammer when you're going up icy hills. You'll end up just sitting in one place. Disabling DTC will let those wheels spin and push you up the hill.

Personally; I prefer having my Xi in New England. Especially since I live out in the woods and plows are a rarity.
