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

    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.

    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?
