    Hello,

    I own A3 (sportback from 2007) without the rain sensor and no automatic headlights. I wanted my lights to automatically turn ON when I enter the tunnel or when night falls, and also for them to turn OFF when I exit the tunnel. Installing original sensor for this would mean to also install different windshield and that simply was not an option for me. So I decided to build my own piece of hardware and install it behind the light switch. I am now sharing it with you, as maybe someone else might want to build it too.
