LED Headlights

Anyone with the full LED headlights notice after washing your car and then driving it for a bit that the lights get moisture in them in the blinker area and lower main light area? dealer says its normal as long as it goes away, because they are not air tight there is a filter in the casing. It does go away but I'm wondering whats going happen when its raining and driving if the whole thing will fog up.

Seems to me they need to be resealed. No water gets into my exterior lights for my Acura.

I've never noticed moisture inside - maybe a small patch of fog in some conditions, but nothing major or permanent.

Yes fog is what I meant, usually starts in the blinker area first.

I had that moisture build up on my non LED headlights (standard xenon) when I had my first F12. I asked about it and they said it was normal because the headlights are vented so they don't get all nasty over time.

However, I have been paying attention and haven't noticed any of this on my new LED headlights.

The same concern for a 2013 7-series:
