got a bit of a strange issue here.
i've started to notice that the headlights on my 2012 qashqai are flickering on and off very quickly when driving (seems to do it when idling too).
its like for half a second at most it flickers.

at first i thought it might be the auto headlight on function that was malfunctioning, but i set the lights to on (rather than auto) and it still did it.
it's very noticeable when driving along an unlit road, you can see the light dip and then come back on again. it's not the sidelights though, it's the main dipped beam. and it seems to be both lights (although it's hard to 100% confirm that) so that would suggest it's not as simply as 1 loose bulb.

so any ideas what this might be?
