    The headlight adjusters should sort that out for you, maybe one isnt working right?

    Set the leveler to max - then pop the bonnet and look at the top of the lights, you'll need to use an alan key on the white cogs to adjust the lights to the right level.

    Might be an idea after this to the flip the adjuster in the car down to lower the lights and check they both go down. If not one of the motors could be away. (hardly a major issue if you're sure they're at the right height and you dont carry a full load often.

    Here the A3 doesn't bring the leveler system, so i'll try the alan key thing until they get even

    Thanks
