I did a day of driver's training at my company's track facility in Sweden last March. In a 430i Xdrive. Very similar setup to what was shown in the video, and also on proper winter tires. I have to hand it to the X-drive here. Rear wheel bias was obvious and the car was fun and easy to drift and steer with throttle.

I don't think I've driven a Quattro Audi, just a very recent A3. But I've driven plenty of FWD based AWDs and a true 4x4 with 50/50 torque split front to rear in winter conditions. And it's hard for me to choose which system I liked better. True 4x4 goes better in a straight line, but xDrive is so much fun and easier to hold huge side-slip angles.
