    Am considering upgrading my front lights but noticed last night there's some condensation build up inside the housing. Is this something I can sort out or is it covered under my 1 year audi appoved warranty

    Leave your headlights on for a while, the heat should sort them out.

    get the car back to them and don't listen to any porus plastic ****, get them dried out or replaced.
    Putting on the headlights wont always get rid of condensation, all it does it gets the water hot and vapourises it, as the headlights are supposed to be sealed the vapour has nowhere to go so when it cools, it reappears.
    If it had somewhere to go i.e. a vent, then water would just get back in. Use the warranty, thats what its for.

    I totally agree if theyre under warranty take them back - thats the whole purpose of having a warranty and dont let them fob you off.

    It's an Audi policy .... and also a BMW one not to change them as they say it's not a fault.

    p.s. They are vented.

    After retrofitting H.I.D.'s to my A4, I'm suffering from this too.

    Going to sort it today though by removing lights, taking out all the bulbs and drying the inside of the lights with a hairdryer - hopefully it'll work!!
