Default dark spots on headlights

im noticing some dark spots on my headlight. they are the dynamic cornering ones. both lights have it. they look like dark shadows on the lower part of the headlights. they also appear to be inside the lights... anybody experience this? should be a warranty item. i noticed also that during the rainy days the lights gather moisture in this part of the headlights

Sorry to say this, rick, but you've had more than a handful of problems with your car lately.

Methinks he spends too much time with a magnifying glass in his hands when it should contain a steering wheel!

i guess its the perfectionist in all of us. actually it wasn't me who noticed it but my brother because we had our cars lined up and he noticed it. he also has a P-car. Nevertheless, might as well notice all things that can be noticed while the warranty is there, anybody disagree? dealer relations is good. but back to regular programming...black spots headlights....??? anybody have the same issue? i will post some pics of the P-car soon for everybody's appreciation.. i think i posted before when it was new around may 2010 and now a year and 15,000 km later i will share again. will indicate the mods made for everybody's critique. this will be good hahaha.

No, not yet. It will probably be 4 to 6 weeks because I have a few odds and ends to clear up.

I have been "window shopping" for the past 3 years (yeah I know, I'm sick) trying to stay abreast of what is available and keep in touch with pricing. Used prices are on the rise. I want to make sure I consider all of my options before I jump into anything. It's been 3 years and 29 days since I owned a Porsche (but who's counting) so I think I can make it another few weeks.
