I'm not sure it's weather related. My TSB lights were installed in April and I got the bubbling a month later. It was not hot here in Chicago in April, so it certainly wasn't the heat that caused it....

My thought is that it has to do with the car being outside and the way the sun reflects off the chrome ring around the headlight bulb. I say this because nearly all the new cars in my dealer's lot...

Thanks, Jeff. What are the locator pins for? Also, when you get an F-Sport from the factory are the badges also just glued on?

Don't buy these headlamps now as the updated, 2012 TSB headlamps have the same bubbling flaw as the 2011 lights. Wait until Lexus acknowledges the problem and fixes the headlamps before buying them....
