    Hi, I have a 2008 audi s3 3dr and am having a lot of trouble with the headlights, I seams when driving at night with the lights on low beam they just are not looking forward enough.
    I just cant find am adjuster anywhere?? i know they are auto adjust but its actually hard to drive at the minute. are the lights broken or fuse out maybe?

    Any ideas would be great thanks

    Ben

    There are adjusters on the lights but from what I remeber they have to be put into an adjustment mode using VCDS before doing it otherwise it gets confused.

    I have just got the car back form the stealers! ended up being a sensor on the back axle of the car. not too bad as got a new a3 tdi for the day and the s3 got a full wash and polish only cost £36. ;)

    Happy days! Does that mean the car was always thinking there was some fat tw@ in the back?

    £36 is very cheap if the rear sensor wasn't under warranty, as they're usually £114+
