    Just noticed some moisture on the inside of my headlight glass, it's on both sides in the same place...should I be worried?

    According to Audi and the manual it can happen and is normal. It doesn't shorten the life of the bulbs allegedly. Just drive with the headlights on for a while and it will evaporate away with the airflow over the car. Ditto if you get it in fog lights (though other people will think you are an ex Saxo driver for using fog lights when it isn't foggy).

    John.

    Thanks Johnny, strangely it seemed to appear after a long drive and has slowly disappeared over the course of the afternoon

    It is common to have the problem on the LED headlights.. The seat's also have the same problem due to the LEDS not hot enough to evaporate the condensation ! Don't worry though.

    I've had about three cars with Xenons do it too - nothing to worry about.

    I also had it on my previous Seat Altea with Xenon.
    Seat changed both headlamps on the warranty.

    Came as standard on the 8P, annoying but just one of those things I guess.
