Just Picked it Up An Issue!!

Ok so my mother picked up her X5 yesterday we noticed that the headlight was a little fogged , so I'm wondering if this is a problem or only there because it was sitting inside and then was outside in the cold.

You know, mine was like this as well, now that I think of it. I have not seen it fogged since, but it will surely be something that I'll keep an eye on for the next 4 years/50K miles. You should too. Maybe someone else will chime in, and say that it's normal on the new lights.

Apparently a certain amount (not a lot - possibly caused by moisture of rubber seals etc.) of condensation is normal. There have been reports with MY2014 cars as well...

I've seen this on other cars, when 'enthusiastically' washing the engine bay- water gets into the breather for the headlights. Usually dissipates without issue

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells

After running through a car wash the other day I noticed there was a little bit in my 2012's headlight as well.
