    Change the sensitivity on the wiper stalk to the right- I find mine on the a6 are spot on.

    I too have the same problem. Mine is in to the dealers this week to find out why they are so crap.

    There is a setting on the mmi for light sensitivity, you can have early auto or late from what I remember.
    The wipe sensitivity is controlled by the intimitant setting on the wiper stalk.
    Audi Northampton, Audi Ipswich, and Audi UK are rubbish and lack the basic skills of customer service.
    Please read my posts about my experience, and I hope this helps you to make the decision not to buy an Audi 2.0 TDi 170 engine, they are not fit for purpose and the tolerance levels are a joke.

    I also have a problem with them. Not sure I have the tbh but there is what looks like a sensor on the windscreen. If the wipers are on intermittent when the car is turned off then the car is turned on again when it's raining or the screen is wet they don't seem to come on. I have to switch them off and then back on again?
