headlight moisture, does anyone have this issue?

just wondering does anyone have moisture on both of headlight while driving in a rainning day? for my car the moisture is on both of headlight but usually disappears an hr after car stop running. When the car is not running even with the car parked outside in the rain, it will not accumulate mositure. I took the car to two different BMW dealership, but they all told me it is normal and because the vent's on the bottom of headlight and alot of heat goes in and out creates moisture.
what you guys thinking???? should I insist them to repair or replace? my original warranty is going to expire on next month, so any suggestion?

Good..the bmw service supervisor already set up for my next appointment to check it up again.
Hope they do something not just keep telling me it is normal.

There is a real issue with moisture in the rear tail lights, apparently the rubber seal around the light causes a problem, which breaks down and allows water into the lights. There is a tech release for this! I had my rear lights replaced completely, (one of the reason's you see so many second hand on Ebay is a result of this programme). I think the problem was upto 2011 cars???
As for the headlights, it depends on the condensation and were it sits, many headlights today are not fully sealed (airtight) and so can get condensation on the inside which dissipates naturally and is not a real problem. If the condensation is pooling then there is a real problem and needs to be changed!!!! It should be done under warranty!!!

yes, as the mechanic told me it is normal if it didn't sit there for whole day, but after I noticed this issue and always pay attention it just annoy me that evertime rain will create moisture and cover up for at leat 1/3 of headlight on both side.
good thing is they set up my appointment next week and told me they are going to take off the headlight this time to see what's going on inside and also have a loan car for me, which I hope they are really gonna do something to fix the probelm for me.
