The other day I was happily taking my FWD 100ps mk6 across a piece of flat (wet-ish) grass when I turned a little and dug the front end in 20cm. A nice mildly embarrasing recovery operation followed in view of the general public using a couple bits of ply, heavy jack and some carpet and I was on my way again (towards the tarmac 3m ahead of the incident)
Anyway, the question is, would this have happened with RWD??
I am shortly going to upgrade to a MK7 MWB and can't decide which drivetrain is best. Most driving will be onroad but will occasionaly require to take a 1T trailer offroad.
I dont mind the van going sideways from time to time (730am frosty B&Q carpark) as I can deal with this, but getting stuck in the mud is no good!
I am leaning towards RWD but have read on here that people seem to think the FWD is better on said piece of wet grass??
