It looks like some aliasing aka wagon wheel on film effect. Any pattern in flickering of the lights overlaps with the pattern of the film sample rate. The same thing happens if you try to videotape a TV you see flickering bars. At least a cathode ray tube TV, I don't know if the new LCD TVs flicker.

That is weird. Your explanation makes sense except that car electronics run off DC not AC. There shouldn't be any flickering for the camera to pick up. DC powered lights like a handheld flashlight are constant, AC powered lights like household lighting do flicker. Unless the LED running lights work off AC but that doesn't make sense.

After testing the '09 A3, I was ready to make a purchase. After testing the '10 A3 TDI, I'm blown away. February can't come fast enough.

Incredible turn handling, over-responsive braking, U-turns on a dime, and a fantastic Bluetooth audible phone sync make this an incredible value. :thumbsup
