A6 Avant Headlights Issue

Ok could someone tell me if this is correct. I have a 2010 A6 Avant with Bi-Xenon headlights ie the projector beam one side of the housing and a normal halogen the other. The Bi-Xenon's work on dip and main but the halogens don't seem to work on main (full) beam, they only work if I flash etc.

Is this correct, I can't think it can be!! Any advice welcome?

Cheers

This is correct. On FL cars, the inner lights are flashers only and have a row of led's for DRL.

Hi!
My A6 (2005) has two optical. The principal projector is for short light beam and long range. Other optical (inside) is for day light.
My car has bi-xenon with ds2 bulbs.
Your car (2010) has leds day light and it can work different.

Seems a bit mad if the inside halogen beams are not used for high beam as well as it makes a big difference in light output on the road, my bi-xenons are ok but no patch on my old twin turbo B5 S4!!

It always work this way. Light of inside is P21w bulb. It only is day light. Principal projector is bi-xenon (low light / high light).

On the FL with LED DRL's and bi-xenon, I think that the inside lights are for flashing at night when you have your headlights on.

Just seems like a waste of a decent light source for main beam use ie all lights on!! if you ask me. There must be a way to wire them in!!
