    Headlamp misting up, likely causes?

    Just noticed the other day that my drivers side headlamp is misting up. Seems to happen when we have a cooler night, perhaps after a humid day and it's misted when I come to start the car in the morning. Any suggestions as to likely causes and what needs fixing - I'd been planning to upgrade the bulbs anyway so maybe I can include that in the work.

    Thanks

    Chris

    I've had this problem with both sides of my B7.

    Initially, Audi did it under warranty, but it entailed taking it in over a period of several weeks for them to take photographs. They eventually replaced the offside one. I occasionally get condensation in the nearside one, but they claim that this the amount is acceptable and won't do anything about it.

    I always had the impression that they knew all about it. It is annoying when people point it out. Shouldn't happen on a car of this value.
