Moisture in zenon headlight compartment

Guys,

my 99' 328i has moisture in the Xenon headlight compartment, other than being an eye sore will this cause issues with the Xenon bulb or zenon lighting system?
and how much does it cost to fix?

When I purchased the car from the certified dealership the original light had moisture in it and they replaced it. I wonder if they in fact replaced it at all!

all tips welcome.

Mike

Common, if the moisture doesn't go away after about 5 min with the lights on you should get the assembly replaced due to a faulty seal. Mine had moisture in the HL assy right off the truck, but after the Xenons had been on for a couple mins the moisture was gone...
