    Found a car I'm interested in buying, 11 reg, 35k mileage Mondeo. Spotted some condensation in rear lamp set. Viewed this evening after dark, so not sure if this affects things, but lights in surrounding cars seemed OK. Should this be a concern for a buyer?

    My 7 year old cars front headlamp has had condensation for at least 4 years. Only ever been mentioned once at mot time and never as a failure. Guess it depends on if/when it fails in the future but no idea how long that will be.
