    Smile New car!

    Car arrived this morning and it needs a couple of things doin to it. MOT is due and so is cambelt, also theres condensation in both headlamps and both fog lights so thats looking like a fail christ knows how all four of them have gone.

    Can anyone tell me what to expect for the lights and what is the normal cam belt rate not from the stealers with all local belts changed and water pump.

    Cheers!

    In the Audi Owner's Manual it says

    The headlamps may mist up on the inside in cool and damp weather. This is due to the differences in temperature on the inside and the outside of the glass. This phenomenon has no influence of the life expectancy of the vehicle lights.

    The best way to get rid of the condensation is to drive with the lights on for a while. The heat generated by the lights should clear any condensation.
