Condensation getting in headlights

I have stock headlights and never made any adjustments and my passenger side headlamp gets condensation in them when it rains. Then goes away after a day or two of sun. I brought it to the dealer and they said it would be $1,300 to replace HAHA. They say it will eventfully start blowing out my bulbs. Is there anyway to get this repaired? It is there any good after market HID headlights with angel eyes you guys know of!? Thanks

Where is the leak coming from? Is the seal on the back behind the bulbs tight? Perhaps you can run some silicone around the lens/housing.

Yes, there are a few good ones and many not so good ones. Search around and educate yourself. There is a lot you can learn to make an informed decision if you plan to go aftermarket.

I know that's why I'm not sure why to do. I've been looking and I can't tell which ones are good or bad. Do you have a particular site that has good ones?

Look up fishcake321 on eBay and try umnitza.com. Those are my two that I'm trying to decide between.

They're real nice!! But a lot don't fit my car because they're already equipped with HID Xeon headlights

If you have Xenons and your car's lights are leaking and you are not under warranty.
Look up a DIY on how to remove your bumper, then take your headlight out, put it into an oven, wait about 30 minutes - 200 degrees bake, middle of your oven, cookie pan.
Then take the headlight out, apply a little silicon around the edges where it looks like it's seaping in, and presto you are done.

or email us, we may have some other suggestions if you want to go that route.
