headlight condensation

I have a 2000 M5 and the left headlight bucket gets condensation on the inside if its out in the rain. They're HID headlights. Any recomendations.

Somehow water must have got into the light and got trapped there. So when it rains, the rain cools the light lens and condenses the trapped water so you see it. If there is no leak, you can remove that water. Not easy, I did this on E30 tail lights
