    Problems with the self levelling are common on the S3's Xenons, as any search will confirm, I've had two S3's and both have had this problem, the first one several times. I think this is more usually related to the levelling sensor/s which is/are mounted on the suspension somewhere - so you may not have to replace the whole light unit.

    However if one of the lamps seems to be going out, I haven't had this particular aspect of Xenon misery on either of my two S3's.

    Don't know how much they cost to replace, suggest you investigate options for selling a kidney or other major organ after you've called the dealer...

    I normally find my local dealer very helpful, it would be a good idea to give them a call and see if they have any suggestions.

    I've already sold a kidney to get a busted fog light replaced i'd have to sell my body as the rest of it is about knackerd then probably would get much either.I'll have to find meself a rich bird to look after me and more important look after the car.
