F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Water droplets in headlights

I just gave my new car its first wash using a garden hose and sponge ,after drying I noticed that both headlights had about 10 drops of water inside the bottom of the front lights.Has anyone else noticed this after a wash or is this abnormal,and something I should bring to dealership attention?

That's abnormal. I'd bring it in and ask them to resolve it.

The headlight enclosures are vented. Avoid wetting the vents.

Operate the headlights to evaporate the droplets for exchange with dryer air via the vents that, I believe, are in the bottom rear of the enclosure.
