condensation in headlights on cold rainy day

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Its a cold rainy day today and I noticed condensation building up in BOTH headlights.....on the innser sides of the headlights next to the grills. the other interesting thing is that its an even build up of condensation, kind of on an angle....on both headlights. its a mirrored image of each other.

is this a common thing?

ill post up a picture later.

Normal. The housings are ventilated. I'm guessing there was a decent change in temperature involved?

that's normal. BMW makes the ventilation on the headlights. It happens to me all the time when it is raining or cold. it depends on your humidity as well.
