Thanks again guys.
Okay.. Now here's the bad part. When I got her out of the car-wash, I noticed this condensation in the passenger side headlight when I got home. I've got a whole range of suggestions from various people. From drilling a hole in the bottom of the headlight to putting rice in it..
But if any of you guys have faced a similar problem and overcome it, please let me know how. If all else fails, I'll replace the headlight. But what's the fun in doing that

Here's what I'm talking about.


and one more pic for comparison

p.s - I see no obvious difference in the performance of the headlights though.

Post headlight

very nice car Vivek!

about the headlight - its probably the gasket around the headlight that has worn out. it'll do you good in the long run to get it changed as soon as possible. will not cost you more than a couple of dollars.
once, the reflective coating starts rusting due to accumulated vapour, the headlight assembly will need to be replaced / recoated which will work out to be expensive.

Thanks man. That turned out to be the issue

@Everyone else: Thanks a lot guys... I'm planning to write a full review as soon as I spend enough time with the car to get familiar with all its quirks. But right from the onset, this is an entirely different experience from the Lexus. They have very different personalities. I'm trying to drive them both on alternate days
