    condensation on inside of headlights cover

    Hi, I am in the process of buying a used A3 (1.8 T) from approved Audi dealer. When doing the check around the car, I noticed there was condensation on the inside of the clear plastic sheet part that covers the headlights. This was only on the right hand light, the other one was fine. The guy at the dealer said this was normal as the car hadn't been used for a while and that it would go away after normal use. (He also said that if there was any probs to take it back under the 12 mth warranty. ) Is he right or should I be worried about this condensation? I thought it would be watertight around there. Also, do you reckon this will be covered under warranty??

    This is normal on the face lift headlights - nothing to be concerned about.

    Dealers will only change the lights if there are droplets of water running down the lens!

    Otherwise, nothing to worry about!

    Its normal. Had my S3 for 6 months now and the fog light condensed up. Just turn on the lights and leave for 10 mins or so and should be clear again.
