Quattro and/or 4motion are different AWD systems and is comparing apples to oranges.
We're running this issue in two threads here. Can we merge them???

BAck OT: Agreed that Quattro is different, just saying that I had some binding with those as well, and I think the Xi is somewhat more "rough/primitive" in terms of tech. Gut feeling, I can't substantiate this claim in any way.

My CV boot was torn, they checked it, it was fine, they put a new boot on and packed it with grease. "They" could be wrong, but that kind of thinking where I second guess everyone has gotten me into trouble before.
