I don't think your car a has limited slip differential. It probably has the lousy ASR system that puts the brake to the wheel that spins and is almost usless on hills in the snow. I have a '94 wagon, if the snow tires aren't 'first season' I don't go anywhere up hills in any kind of snowfall. Do you have the 'snowtire w/ chains' button on your dash? If so that is the equally lousy ASR defeat switch - gives me about 1500 rpm of engine when all tires are slipping. I guess it is a better system than the first generation 4Matic system though - doesn't cost as much to operate.
