Now I was wondering is it a common problem for the gasket between the light and the body to go bad or is there no record of a problem.

Also is this a deal breaker?

My 05 zx5 did that 4 months ago when I changed my tails for aftermarket ones.
The metal screw on the side of the taillight ate the plastic washer when I put it back. Results : Water leaking. I used sillicone and now no more leak^^eheh

And I sealed the wings from the inside.
