Headlamp condensation - Bentley Brooklands Coupe 2010

There is condensation in one of the main beam headlamps on my Bentley Brooklands Coupe - 2010. When I took it to the dealer for a service I told them, and they laughed and said it was a common problem on Bentleys, and to switch on main beam to dry it out. Not really what I was expecting and rather disappointing. Hong Kong roads are well lit and busy most of the time, so the opportunity or necessity to use main beam is low to zero.

Does anyone have any experience with this "common problem"?

In think the headlamps need to be removed, dried out and resealed but I believe that's a labour intensive job which requires the removal of the front bumper and wings. I've never done it nor seen it done so have no experience, just relaying what I have read and I could be wrong.

Hum....why not on old cars, but on such a car with 9 years, very surprising. It should be waterproof.
In my opinion they are worried you ask to replace it at their expenses for warranty...

If I took my car to a dealer and they laughed at the problem, I'd report the dealer to the manufacturer.
