Re: condensation

*Some* condensation is to expected in the headlamps - this is true of most newer cars even though it was never acceptable previously to my knowledge (i've asked about this at a dealer!).

I suppose it depends on how severe the condensation is. If it's a light film, then I'm not sure what you can do. If it's heavy water droplets, then you need to make sure the dust covers are on, headlamp is in good condition (no cracks etc.), and / or else the seal must have deteriorated over time.
