Mk8 Golf GTi, front light bar water ingress

Has anyone had issues with the front grille light bar with water ingress?  If so was this under warranty ?

If that at least meets the criteria VW use for similar water ingress of the headlights then I’m sure they’d replace it, presumably though these are fully sealed, so any form of water in them would justify replacement.

Yep, I know a guy who had his replaced when the car was relatively new. I think he may have posted about it on here himself. It requires the entire grill to be swapped out.
MK8 GTI Clubsport. Reflex silver, Estorils, and a few other bits.

Front light bar replaced under warranty.
