This problem started really after the snow came.

When the car is stationary, there's this noise, like the driveshaft (I think it's the driveshaft? rotates even when the car is stationary?) scrapes against something?

It only happens rarely, which confuses me.

I also get the noise when im trying to get up the hill. It seems that instead of the wheels spinning the driveshaft scrapes on something?

Sorry it sounds really vague, any more questions I'll be happy to answer, golf is lowered on coilovers, but they are set to the highest setting.

i think what you may be experiencing when driving over ice is that one wheel starts to slip therefore the differential sends more power to that side and makes that grinding noise.
