Damn i think i remember your thread now. that sucks man! hope you get it fixed, that should never happen on a brand new car. My old car didn't even start leaking oil till past 120,000 miles!

I justed looked at my cousins 2011 IS250 F-Sport led headlights and its barely starting to become wavy and wrinkled in those same areas on both headlights. Something is really heating that area up!

maybe we should do a factory check... I believe IS's are made in two locations in Japan.

When I first noticed this thread I checked my lights and I didn't have this problem but now it is a different story. I have bubbles on both sides of my head lights... Does anyone have a link to where to report this issue through Lexus?

I think most people have just been reporting it to their dealership.

Keep us updated every while, I live in the Middle East and it's JDM specs too, except our steering wheel in on the left. I want those damn headlights!

Report the problem these 3 ways:

1. Tell your dealer's service department manager
2. Call Lexus at 800-255-3987, option #3
3. Email Lexus at the link found on this page: http://www.lexus.com/contact/

You need to email to have a case number opened for your VIN and create a record of the issue. Just reporting it to the dealer won't do it. I would suggest reporting the problem all 3 ways.

Lenscap2 is right. Call and make sure you get a case number. going to dealership will waste time since all they will do is open a case.

Mine is around 1300 miles and I've had it since early February. I found the bubbling on the right headlight and a little bit less on the left headlight.

I have had my car for almost a month and I have 1300 miles on it when I noticed this, seems like the driver side is alot worse than the passenger.

Reported it to Lexus via their Lexus web/email site. Hopefully when they respond, they will have at least acknowledged that this is an issue.
