Fwd A5 Audi ok on tow dolly?

Has anyone had experience with towing a front wheel drive Audi A4 or A5 on a tow dolly? I can't see why it would be a problem unless the ABS system could cause a problem which it shouldn't if the key is off. Any info on this will be appreciated.

Shouldn't be a problem but only Audi would know for sure.

Have you read the owners manual? It will tell you what you need know. There should be a section in it about recreational towing. If there is not any information there then the best thing to is to contact Audi.

Thanks for the reply, I don't own one but would like to buy one. The Audi forums indicate that Audi says they need to be transported on a flat bed with all 4 wheels off the ground which I totally understand and agree with for the all wheel drive models but not for the front wheel drive models. That doesn't make sense to me but maybe there is a reason. I guess I will talk to an Audi dealer but am expecting them to say not to do it. I have seen many VW products on 2 wheel dollies and they are very similarly engineered. I thought maybe someone out there had first hand experience .
