On my 2007 A6 the reversing lights are very feeble, enough to make it quite difficult to reverse in my own driveway in the dark. I understand that I can't simply use higher-wattage bulbs or LED replacements because of the car's fault detection system. My local dealer says that nothing can be done; he may be right, but it's a little difficult to believe. Does anyone have a suggestion?

I checked the Bosch,Phillips and Sylvania websites they all list highoutput or premium lamps. I can't give you a specif reccomendation because they list many options depending on which country you are in and what it came with stock. The lamps you have may already be the brightest available. I would check these sites, input the information and compare them to the bulb you have. The performance lamps may not be readible available at the local autostore but they should be able to order them. Also be aware that the added light comes at the cost of shorter bulb life.
Slightly alternative solution-
Use PIR lights along your drive so that you get the drive lit up from outside, rather than from your car lights.
