    Randomly Flashing Headlights

    Does anybody else's headlights flash once when the car is switched off? I first noticed this a few months back, i parked the car up on the drive, locked it and the headlights flashed once about a minute after.

    One of my headlight bulbs blew the other day and they flashed just after I had replaced it. I am using Osram Nightbreaker bulbs but I can't see these causing the issue as they're direct replacements.

    I've had the car checked out by Audi and they couldn't find/replicate the fault. I think my battery is on its way out because it struggles to start sometimes could this be related?

    Anyone know what could be causing the lights to flash?

    Mine does this sometimes. Don't know why. My car had a new genuine battery less than a year ago and I don't have any problems starting so I don't know what it is

    Haha! It must be, especially with the money/mods that's gone into it, glad it appreciates it!
