So... Second day of rain for the BRZ today and I'm sad to report that there's condensation in my passenger tail light assembly too...

As well as the LED DRL assembly...

Just called local Subaru; and the service man said unless there is a pool of water inside... It is considered "normal" Hmm...

Please stop changing your font, it makes it harder to read.

But for the first tail light it was only a week and they said it was one backorder. The second tail light took a couple days longer because I also got the new fuel injector parts.

Hi Guys,

I experienced this problem in my tail lights when its cold weather or it's rained... After I used the car and parked to our office... The condensation was gone. It's this normal?

Mine have condensation. It comes and go. Told the dealer. They told me they knew about the issue, but that there was no TSB yet. However, they expect a TSB to be issued. If I replaced them now that it would be the same part. So they couldn't recommend it.
