Headlight condensation

Both my headlights are suffering from condensation when it's raining like now. The lower parts and corners are covered with about 1/2cms of misty condensation.

I did some research, but that's not the case in my situation(stock suspension, but I find the cause ridiculous)

I still have warranty on it.

I think I should go back to the dealer....

Cheers
Robin

Before you go back to your dealer... I would first pull out your brighter AE(angel eye) bulbs(IF you have those). I bet one of your covers is not fully seated. Inside the headlights are some circuit boards - the moister can damage those and then your footwell module and or HID ballast can blow. Its not a cheap repair. So putting your car back to totally stock is important.

Good Luck,
Dackel

I had this on my 135i and Xenon stopped working due to the moisture. Replaced under warranty without question.

1M had it the first few days after delivery, but dealer said it was normal and would go away, which it did after a week
