WARNING
Contact
an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or

ized
Audi
Service
Facility
if
the
sport
differen-
tial
is
faulty
or
malfunctioning.
The
repair
must
be
performed
by
trained
personnel
us-
ing
the
correct
oil
in
order
to
ensure
safety.
Electronic
Stabilization
Control
Electronic
Stabilization
Control
(ESC)
supports
driver
safety.
It
reduces
the
risk
of
slipping
and
improves
driving
stability.
ESC
detects
critical
sit-
uations,
such
as
if
the
vehicle
is
oversteering
or
understeering,
or
if
the
wheels
are
spinning.
The
brakes
are
applied
or
the
engine torque
is
re-
duced
in
order
to
stabilize
the
vehicle.
The
following
stabilization
functions
are
integrat-
ed
into
the
ESC,
among
others:
Anti-lock
Braking
System
(ABS)
ABS
prevents
the
wheels
from
locking
when
brak-
ing.
The
vehicle
can
still
be
steered
even
during
hard
braking.
Apply
steady
pressure
to
the
brake
pedal.
Do
not
pump
the
pedal.
A
pulsing
in
the
brake
pedal
indicates
that
the
system
is
acting
to
stabilize
the
vehicle.
Anti-Slip
Regulation
(ASR)
ASR
reduces
drive
power
when
the
wheels
begin
spinning
and
adapts
the
power
to
the
road
condi-
tions.
This
will
increase
the
driving
stability.
Electronic
Differential
Lock
(EDL)
The
EDL
applies
the
brakes
to
wheels
that
are
slipping
and
transfers
the drive
power
to
the
oth-
er
wheels.
This
function
is
not
available
at
higher
speeds.
In
extreme
cases,
EDL
automatically
switches
off
to
keep
the
brake
on
the
braked
wheel
from
over-
heating.
The
vehicle
is
still
functioning
correctly.
EDL
will
switch
on
again
automatically
when
con-
ditions
have
returned
to
normal.
Selective
wheel
torque
control
Selective
wheel
torque
control
is
used
when
driv-
ing
on
curves.
Braking
is
targeted
toward
the
wheels
on
the
inside
of
the
curve
as
needed.
This
allows
more
precise
driving
in
curves.
Power
steering
The
ESC
can
also
support
vehicle
stability
through
steering.
ZA\
WARNING
—The
ESC and
its
integrated
systems
cannot
overcome
the
limits
imposed
by
natural
physical
laws.
This
is
especially
important
on
slippery
or
wet
roads.
If
the
systems
begin
acting
to
stabilize
your
vehicle,
you
should
immediately
alter
your
speed
to
match
the
road
and
traffic
conditions.
Do
not
let
the
in-
creased
safety
provided
tempt
you
into tak-
ing
risks.
This
could
increase
your
risk
of
a
collision.
Please
note
the
risk
of
a
collision
increases
when
driving
fast,
especially
through
curves
and
on
slippery
or
wet
roads,
and
when
driv-
ing
too
close
to
objects
ahead. There
is
still
a
risk
of
accidents
because
the
ESC and
its
integrated
systems
cannot
always
prevent
collisions.
Accelerate
carefully
when
driving
on
smooth,
slippery
surfaces
such
as
ice
and
snow.
The
drive
wheels
can
spin
even
when
