Has anyone experience one of there headlights flickering? Drivers side seems to have a slight flicker.

Haven’t got the matrix lights just the normal xenons.

Wondering if it’s a new bulb time or maybe a fault?

Im driving a 2015 S3 Sportback

Thanks

Assuming the flicker isn’t due to uneven road surface then quite likely your xenon bulb or ballast is on its way out - not great at this time of year. Mine did that for about a week then went dim and a bit pink. Car was 5 years old.

Bulb change on the 8V is a bit of a pain as it’s normally a bumper off job, so do both at the same time.

It’s normally when the car is started up first thing on a morning.

I’ve thinking of buying extended warranty do you think this would be covered under warranty if I did?
