    I have auto lights on my A3 but i would like the lights to be on constantly as i have xenons. Is there a easy way of doing this?

    I was thinking, either cover up the sensor so the car thinks its dark all the time, or to fit the new switch which includes the DRL, any ideas?
    BTW my car has auto dim rear view mirror and apparently thats where the sensor sits but it doesnt have auto wipers.

    Also the 'wheel' which adjusts the light brightness inside the car seems to have a lose connection as its constantly dim, but when i push the into the 'wheel' inwards it comes on bright again, how do i take this off...?

    Sorry about all this but i'm new to Audi's and this forum, but im loving it already

    If you cover up the sensor, then the wipers will also be going all the time!

    As he said!

    If you have bi-xenon then you would have a dedicated DRL bulb. on standard xenon you can activate the headlights as DRL, mind that they will still be on in the brightest sunlight
