Changing over headlight dip settings

The asymmetric low beams of the headlights are designed to light up the near side of the road more intensely. If you drive in a country where traffic drives on the opposite side of the road to the home country, this will dazzle oncoming traffic.

Headlights with halogen bulbs: To avoid dazzling oncoming traffic you can apply opaque stickers to certain parts of the headlight lenses.

Headlights with xenon gas-discharge bulbs: The headlight dip settings must be changed to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic. For safety reasons, the dip settings may only be changed by a qualified workshop.

For further information, please consult an Audi dealer or other qualified workshop.

Unleaded petrol

A car with catalytic converter must not be run with leaded petrol. Before driving abroad make sure that unleaded petrol is available there.
