Default Baleno a/c pipe

I have noticed water dripping from condensation on the a/c pipe of the baleno. A portion of it directly over the radiator is not insulated. Is this normal or should the pipe be insulated here. Invite comments/replies from Baleno owners.

Its normal and you need to do nothing. If you think it doesn't look good then you could get it covered with a plastic sleeve. However you would need to let out all the gas and remove the piping to do that. Just let it be.

Thanks guys. I think I will insulate it myself, by winding some insulation material strips used in home a/c, and see if there is any effect on the a/c. Which by the way is awesome, used the car in Pune at 41 deg C ambient, and always chilled the car very quick.
Saajan, Goa is a little hot, 33 deg, and very humid. Hope you and other forum users will make it for the upcoming Team-BHP meet?
