The manual says some condensation is normal. The lights are vented to the outside. If it doesn't clear or you get a lot of water, have the dealer look at it.

Sorry for the rant but pretty P.O'd about it
Can you post a pic of the light so we can see how much condensation you're talking about? Chances are if you're still seeing it then it's not normal but it depends on how much there is.

Put the picture online using a file sharing service such as google's picasa, or photobucket and then click the button and paste the link to the photograph. Bam, now you can show off or share images with style and ease.
