Headlamp Moisture

I just took re-delivery of my 2013 F02 with the Lighting Pkg 2 days ago and I noticed condensation inside the exterior glass casing of the head lamp. The car has 2500 miles, 2450 of which were in Europe. Is this normal? Should I take it back and make them replace the headlamps?

It's normal because I've noticed condensation inside the housing as well.

It happens to a lot of cars. It used to happen to my Range Rover and sometimes our Porsche. Don't think my '12 AH750 ever went in the rain. If it does not go away in a day or 2..then take it to the dealer, to make sure there is not a defective seal.

Could be a defective seal and the combination of a high powered jet wash

Never noticed it on mine and I've had my car in two very different environments, one which had a very high moisture level (South Florida).

I believe in the manual it says it's normal to have some condensation depending on conditions. I also have condensation in my S5 housing some times, you can always have the dealer to look at it but they'll be very anal about replacing the entire headlamp housing unless it's an occurring problem.
