    Most lights arent fully sealed units so they will let some condensation in and out when lights are on and get heat in. Its just hit and miss i believe. With our weather being all over the place it wont help. Iv had it on plenty of cars

    As above. Ive got it in my Leon and my Cupra. Front and rear factory sealed units. I'm sure it's actually in my handbook that it's normal and using the lights dries it out or something along those lines.

    My brother also bought a brand new Leon and took it back 3 times because of condensation in the headlights. Seat claimed it was normal and refused to do anything.
