Default Problems with the Xenon headlights "AUDI S3" (225HP) 2002

Hii!! Iam a Audi S3(225HP)2002 owner. I have problems with automatic level of the xenon headlights... The aiming of the two headligths is diferent, one is aiming normaly but the other aims very low. The level of the headligths should have same level.
If anyone have the same problem please tell me if you now something about this matter and how can i solve this problem?? ANYONE HAS THIS PROBLEM?????
I detected the same problem in this site www.s3-passion.com on the link "SOUCIS" and it is discriced like this:

It happens that the X?non headlights of your vehicle are not adjusted any more automatically, but put out of order themselves or vary permanently. The problem can have three origins:

The electronic case of management of the headlights, located in the column B, conducting side (it is rather rare)

One of the two sensors of plate , installed 1 with before left and 1 with the left back of the wheels. The problem is translated as for the engine of adjustment hereafter by a sudden lowering of one of the front headlights. The most frequent breakdown is quite simply the oxidation of the contacts of the cards of these sensors, which cause a contact towards the mass. Remedy: bend anti-oxidation for electrical contacts.

One of the two engines of headlamp setting. These are the latter which are most frequently concerned. The problem is known at Audi and it is advisable to see your mechanic to carry out the replacement of the defective parts, moreover replaced by a new model since 11/2001, r?f. Audi 8L0 941 295 B . Sometimes, it is right one of the cards connected on one of engines which does not make contact.

It should be known that these problems appeared with the X?non headlights of the Evolution model. There does not exist with the old headlights (< 08/2000)! But it is not the headlight which is in question, but the unit of adjustment (driving), different from old, and which apparently does not pose problems badly. A solution for those which must pass there, but which does not have any more guarantee, nor confidence in the new engines, is there to install the old ones. The installation is a little delicate, since the cover of the rod of order is a hair larger than on the new ones. But it returns and these engines have an absolute reliability!!

Maybe this is not exactly a problem... Could it be that the lights have a "lower" cutoff on the left so as not to blind oncoming drivers?

PS - ?s Portugu?s?

Claro que eu estou por aqui.
Aconselho-te a meteres esse post no forum a3/s3.
Os forums americanos tem muita mais participacao e camaradagem.

Por acaso hoje o meu a6 2,7t q deu-me o codigo 306 que e o cilindro 6 a fazer misfire.
Tenho que ver o que se passa.
