The driver simply fails to understand that grip is determined by the tires, not the driveline. Once moving, the AWD driver on inappropriate tires is no better off than a two-wheel drive car with the same tires.
Again here we seem to be missing the point. If the fwd with all seasons are managing is it not possible that the driveline is what's enabling me to drive this car with staggered summer tires. Spoken differently would a 335i with the same tires and no awd keep up with the fwd corrollas, i doubt. Nobody is saying drive it like its stolen to prove a point. Just keep up with the corollas.
