Just to update you guys: Toyota replaced my taillight with a new one on Monday. I'm a satisfied customer. They gave me a copy of the service bulletin, shall I post it up?

Do you think these issues effect the BRZ?

I'm sure they do. They're all built on the same production line. They're just going to be less common because the BRZ is less common.

Just to point something out then. It's been raining here for almost a week straight. It just let up today and I've been keeping a lookout for condensation the last four or five days. There has been zero problems with my BRZ's lights. I'm curious what these "body pannel" problems are, though.

FWIW - My condensation went away after a few days but it came back as soon as I washed my car.

Glad to hear it sounds like they will cover this with the warranty. I had an S4 once and Audi refused to fix this same issue. One of about 10 reasons Audi/VW has lost me as a customer forever.

Well in case anyone was wondering, my BRZ has the same issue. Gonna see if it goes away, if not I'll take it in.

Good for you. BTW, do you have PDF version of the two Tech Tips? I want to print them out and take to the dealer. The pictures in the linked page seem too small. Thanks.

Mine went away on its own after a couple of hours. Have since washed the car 3 times ( In a week ) and all is Ok. My poor wife is officially second fiddle. Took it to an informal auto get together on Friday night and the car was very well received.

IMHO you should take it in whether it goes away or not. If it does it once, it will most likely do it again, and you may not notice it until its too late.

Mine haven't done it, but I am keeping an eye on them.

I don't have a PDF version unfortunately. My Toyota dealership printed them out and gave them to me. I could try to take a hi-res image of the printed pages if you'd like.

Hey rbrtndrws, it would be great if you have a scanner around and can make a hi-res copy. I tried to find them at https://techinfo.toyota.com/ , but it needs subscription. Take your time. I'm not in a hurry. Appreciated it.:happy0180:
