Complaint - Exterior Lighting

MY WIFE AND CHILD WERE DRIVING THROUGH THE DESERT IN ARIZONA WHEN OUR AUDI'S DRIVER-SIDE XENON HEADLIGHT FAILED. THEN AGAIN 2 MONTHS LATER, DRIVING WITH MY WIFE AND CHILD THROUGH CALIFORNIA THE PASSENGER-SIDE HEADLIGHT FAILED. BOTH TIMES I WAS TOLD IT WAS THE BULB. BUT WE COULDN'T SIMPLY BUY A NEW BULB. AUDI NEEDS TO ORDER IT AND TAKE OFF THE BUMPER TO REPLACE THEM. ABOUT A MONTH LATER, DRIVING THROUGH THE ARIZONA DESERT WITH MY FAMILY, THE DRIVER-SIDE LIGHT WENT OUT AGAIN. THIS TIME AUDI SERVICE SAID THEY NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITER FOR THE XENON LAMP. THIS ALL HAPPENED WITHIN 5 MONTHS TIME. I'D ONLY OWNED THE VEHICLE ABOUT 2 YEARS. WHEN THESE LIGHTS FAIL, I HAVE TO USE FOG LAMPS OR HIGH BEAMS TO HAVE AT LEAST 2 LIGHTS WORKING AT ONCE.
