    Sensitivity of auto lights, Audi S4

    I have a 2014 Audi S4 Avant which is fitted with auto lights & wipers and so has a light/rain sensor in the front of the rear view mirror. Auto wipers works great and auto lights seem like a good idea but, as with much technology they're not perfect. I have already enabled the (previously...
