    2002 A3. My left headlight keeps eating lowbeam bulbs. Usually lasts a month or two, then suddenly it does not work anymore, and the bulb is all cloudy inside. Nothing wrong with the right one. I have used some 100w bulbs in the past, but the entire engine bay would smell toasty, so i have since switched to Osram nightbreaker 55w.

    Projector lights non xenon.

    What could be the issue, and what can i do to fix it? Any DIY guides?

    Check the wiring i reckon you have burnt the insulation off the wires somewhere using the 100w...:whistle2:
