    Hi all....
    My 2003 Audi A4 (B6) already has auto dimming mirror, auto lights and coming home/leaving lights....should it have auto rain sensing wipers as well,or was this another option at the time....:uhm:

    Can anyone out there enlighten me...

    Wonder if I should simply just VAGCOM my car to see if they are simply disabled....

    Any more auto features and you will be able to drive it from the passenger seat :whistle2:

    Usually with auto wipers there is a sensor built into the windscreen, usually by the rear view mirror as far as I know - does your car have one of those?

    It's not even listed as an option on Parkers for a B6 :think:

    Auto wipers were not available on the B6. Don't know why as we had them on our '99 Bora and our '97 406 before that. Passat also had them.

    I found them to be very good although not completely perfect. The Bora ones were slightly better than the Peugeot ones.

    Thanks Macduff

    Just had a look at the A4 "Owners Manual" ...and you are right...not a single mention of anything "Rain Sensing"....
    Cheers

    Along similar lines, I have just seen an auto light switch for sale on ebay. In addition to installing this what else would be required for them to work? I guess there must be a photometric (?) sensor too somewhere?
