    Right. I've had the lamps checked out on three seperate occasions and I've been told they are OK.
    So, Is it normal for me to see only about 6 feet in front of the car in the dark?
    It's really tricky driving in the dark coz I can't fekin see anything ahead of me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I'm losing the will to live over these lights. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    I think I've already posted about this problem but I can't find it.

    Cheers again!

    the motors on the auto adjust are faulty. its a known fault. the motors go one of two ways, higher and higher (thats what happened to me - blinded 747s) or lower and lower.
    should be done under warranty /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    There is a Service letter relating to the Xeon lights!! The problem is the motor. Go to your dealer and ask them to sort it out!

    Reading Audi - steared clear of Aston Green in Slough after reading the posts on here!!

    I'd definitely recommend them. My lights weren't event that bad - I had one which just seemed to be slightly lower than the other occasionally - they checked them - said they found a fault and replaced the motors on both of them.

    Thanks for the post's.
    I wasn't aware of the service letter. Thanks Lyrac.

    It's another example of good Audi customer care and another trip to the dealer.
