Complaint - Exterior Lighting

I ENTERED TODAY'S DATE AND MILEAGE BECAUSE I HAD TO DEAL WITH IT AGAIN THIS EVENING, BUT THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN OCCURRING SINCE THE CAR HAD 70000 MILES ON IT. IT HAS NOW GOTTEN SO BAD THAT I HAVE TO TURN THE LIGHTS ON AND OFF EVERY 30 SECONDS OR SO WHILE DRIVING SO THEY WILL STAY ON ENOUGH TO GET THE CAR HOME. I DO NOT DRIVE IT AT NIGHT IF I DO NOT HAVE TO. THIS PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE FIXED. 141 OUT OF 188 COMPLAINTS YOU HAVE RECEIVED ON THIS CAR ARE DUE TO PEOPLE'S HEADLIGHTS GOING OUT WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT. WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY $1000-2000 TO ATTEMPT TO FIX A PROBLEM THAT IS CLEARLY A DESIGN FLAW THAT OCCURS IN CARS WITH AS FEW AS 20000 MILES AND UP. I SAY ATTEMPT BECAUSE IF YOU READ THE THREADS ON THE TOPIC OF "AUDI DIPPED HEADLIGHT" YOU WILL FIND THAT NO FIX IS A SURE THING OR PERMANENT. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM. I SUBMITTED THIS SAME SAFETY COMPLAINT TO YOU A FEW YEARS AGO, NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE AND, TO THIS DAY, PEOPLE ARE STILL SUBMITTING COMPLAINTS AFTER THEY ARE SUDDENLY DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD WITH NO LIGHTS. DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO BE KILLED BEFORE AUDI IS FORCED TO DO A RECALL?
