The laser lights increase the range of the headlights.

An additional module integrated in the headlight converts a blue laser light into a white light using a luminescent material.

Activating or deactivating laser lights

Requirement: the AUTO light function must be set, and the high beam assistant and the laser lights must be switched on in the MMI.

The high beam is controlled by the high beam assistant.

The laser lights switch on shortly after the LED high beams are switched on.

  • To activate the high beam assistant, tap the lever forward (3) fig. 35. The indicator light will appear in the instrument cluster display and the high beams will be switched on or off automatically.

The laser lights are switched on at speeds above approximately 44 mph (70 km/h) when the high beams are switched on. The indicator light will turn on if the high beams are switched on.

The indicator light turns on if the laser lights are switched on.

The laser lights are switched off when the speed decreases below approximately 30 mph (50 km/h) or when the high beam assistant switches the LED headlights off.


  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • All repair procedures on the headlights must be performed by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility that will perform the work according to Audi factory specifications. Incorrect repairs could result in eye injury, impair the function, and may void the vehicle's operating License.
  • Opening the laser module is not permitted and could cause permanent injuries to the eyes.
  • Dangerous exposure to laser beams may occur if the covers are removed or if the headlamp module housing is opened.


  • The headlight contains a class 2 laser. The technical design converts the laser beam so that there is no danger when it is used for its intended purpose.
  • The laser beam emission from the headlamp has been classified in accordance with IEC 60825-1:2007.
  • The possible emission is below the threshold for laser class 2.
  • Maximum laser beam output: 5W (continuous emission), wavelength range = 400 nm - 700 nm.
  • The headlamp light functions are rated in accordance with IEC 62471-5:2015.
  • The beam emitted from the headlamp was classified as risk group 2.
