FT86SF Full LED and condensation

Hi.
I got a pair of ft86sf headlights this week and after a wash the headlight has water spots and condensation.. Is this normal? seems a bit weird for a 800$ headlight.
Waiting maybe to see if this “heat + air” thing I got with it will work but I don’t want to count on it.




Anyone heard about this?

I'd contact them.

For my winjets which are an older pair before the advent of these new full LED projector aftermarket headlight. The manufacturer would say stuff like it's normal and the heat of the headlights will dry it out.

Yours looks a little more than just condensation to me and may be poorly sealed?

The condensation reduced by about 70% after an hour of driving..
Still not gone tho.
Sent them an email, waiting for a response
