Those are great tires. About to do the same in my cat, off to the airport in 20 cm of the fresh stuff in the second worst city in Canada for road clearing. Assuming Vancouver counts as the worst .....
I highly recommend you give it a try with the dsc switched off, 11 seconds on the drc button. I guarantee you will be impressed by the balance of this chassis. The new model is supposed to be an advance over mine and I love mine. The precision with which you can place the car and select the desired angle of drift is eye opening for awd. Any Audi feels like a tractor by comparison.

Sold my much loved '09 XF Lux Azure on Dove/Charcoal
Will give that a try when we get the next dumping of snow. It turned mild here today, above zero. Took the opportunity to wash the cat - a clean cat is a happy cat.
Lovely looking cat....I hope she serves you well with the new footwear over the coming season!
