      My biXenon headlights have done the same in high humidity situations. My cure has been to drive as normal, normal headlight uses will take care of the problem. Halogen headlights should find the 'cure' more quickly than biXenon headlight due to the heat produced by the 'bulbs'.

      Since this is a high humidity time of year in both our regions, i sort of feel my experience is applicable. Time will tell...

      Give it a try and give feedback as you see fit...

      IMO, don't freak out it's all normal.

      Also please take a pic from the side after changing just one wheel. It's a great way to compare.

      Give it a week or three and report back once it's stopped raining all day, every day.

      Just my observation, people (myself included) tend to have a fairly short perspective. your light should return to normal soon.

      Here’s a car with the wheels Brandon spent his day off sending me.



      Looks like it needs to be lower. Here’s my car with the current 16” wheels.



      Sits just right.

      Tires will be here Wednesday. Can’t wait.

      I don't like the RS5 hatch thing either.

      It's better than the 7 with it's droopy butt, but still pretty bad.

      The coupe rules though.

      The more I look at the new Supra, the more I like it.

      After having an MR2 for almost a decade, I retain such a soft spot for Toyota sports cars. I can see myself in one some day.

      And the engine & interior is straight up BMW so you'll feel doubly at home.

      You still have your E46?
