    Hi guys,

    I'm quite new to the site and have found it to be very helpfull and that a lot of you guys are very knowledgeable.

    I have A3 110 tdi sport 00 and it keeps blowing headlight bulbs.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is happening or know if it is a common problem?

    Cheers in advance

    Adrian

    Hello there

    was about to post the same question had my a3 nearly 3 years with no problems
    but the last 2months I've replaced the headlight bulbs twice?
    Everything seems ok all fuses etc
    and they havnt been cheapo bulbs so fort might be worth askin on here before it goes to garage so they can spank my arse!!!
    Any clues and I would be very gratefull
    cheers people

    Mine seem to last about 2 months but last week i bought some off ebay and 1 blew after 3 days. It seams to blow the passenger side more often. So today I have just been out and bought a Good bosch one and have put that in the passenger side. Will have to see how long that one lasts.
