      I had this issue on 09 Audi A3. I was dealing with it for almost 2 years until I finally got motivated and fixed it. It's been running fine for almost an year now.

      The solenoid is at the bottom of the lens housing. It's hidden underneath. You might be able to reach it with WD40's extension tube. This will be the easiest of all options. On my 09 headlights I...

      Yup. I usually make 20-22K miles per year. That's a sharp decline for me. In my previous job I was a service engineer and had company car. Average was 60-80K miles a year. :)

      I bought 09 A3 with 93K 4 years ago. Now I am at 173K. The engine is solid. Oil change is very easy. DSG also is not a big deal - there are many DIY. I've changed mine twice ($118 for oil and filter...
