Foggy Xenon Projector Lens

My passenger side projector lens has what looks like fog or condensation all over it. There's no condensation on any other part of the headlight unit. Driver side projector lens is perfectly clear.

Anyone seen this problem? Repairable or will the entire headlight assembly have to be replaced?

I have seen that on my old e46. I just simply removed bulb and cleaned with mf cloth.

I had the same problem and they replaced some sort of rubber fitting in the lenses and said it should solve the condensation. We will see.

BMW replaced mine fully once I started getting low beam failure warnings after the condensation began.

Alright, I'll bring it in since it seems like they'll fix it.
