    Headlamp Condensation

    Has anyone noticed a build-up of condensation within their A3 headlamps? I used to have this problem with my BMW 3 series and Mercedes c320, but the Jaguar XF was always free of any condensation. Is this just a German thing? Have any of you experienced the same issue?

    No it is a headlamp thing and, unless there is a pool of water, normal for modern acrylic designs. Over at the Ford Focus forum there are owners reporting the exact same appearance. It seems to be the time of year..
