    Hi, well S4 ownership is going well, just keep finding excuses to drive! One thing, the headlight adjustment seems wrong, my old B7 had auto lights so when I started i saw the lights go thru the self level set up, but I dont see it happening on the new car, It doesnt have auto lights so how can i check the self level??

    Thanks.

    Try switching lights on before starting.

    Yeap as per Kite, turn on lights 1st then start, if nothing moves then check for errors, bu tbh if there was a levelling issue it would pop up a dis warning.

    Make sure you do this on an mot bay with vcds to set mot mode, so when adjusted manually it will be setup for auto levelling properly.
