    Xenon lights help needed!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am facing a nice long drive from London up north to the isle of Lewis! It is a lovely 700 mile drive!
    I have recently noticed that my xenon lights r facing the floor more than normal. The passenger light faces the ground quicker than than the drivers one! But over a little time they both face the floor! They both light up fine, and when first turned on they sit level where they should. I checked with vagcom (well tried) and it didn't come back with any errors!

    I need this sorting ASAP as u can imagine a drive up north with lights that don't light up the road is not goin to be enjoyable!

    Is there anyone who knows how to solve this? Or lives near Middlesex? Not far from the Ace cafe who could help me?
    Like I have said before I am new to Audi's and don't want to make anything worse!

    Cheers
    Rob

    Disconnect the electronic adjuster on the back of the headlights, then manually adjust the lights upwards with the Allen key fittings on top of the headlights, simples.

    Right, if you look at the car, the auto leveller is situated on the closest to the bumper, it looks like a black box that has a plug in the back, twist it and it will pop out or just disconnect the plug from the back.

    5w 40 all the way, my s3 used to eat 5w 30.

    Closest to the bumper?
    Where ru looking? Sorry to sound a little stupid!

    Also what is the N249?
    I am looking at new pipes etc all round the engine! Where can I get a while set? Would like either blue or red.
    Then I am getting a new badger 5 tip and jetex filter fitted.
    Then it's time for the remap

    The part of the headlight that is closet to the upper grille.

    The N249 controls the dv and is run by the ecu, by bypassing it like most people do, it stop the ecu dumping boost, helps get rid of a load of potential vacuum leaks and helps sharpen throttle response.

    You cant buy a set per say. You can replace the 2 upper boost hoses and the n75/dv with pipes from forge/sfs etc but all the little pipes are just ebay jobbies, like a few meters of 3,4 & 8mm silicone.
