    get some product that you clean your windows inside with (pregnated wipes or sponey thing) which reduces fogging up inside :Smile:

    I just blast the heaters for 2 mins and all i good.

    i know my mate's EG6 leaked into the boot from one of the roof gutters, so just lift the stipping out and check it out

    Any moisture into the car will cause this, your best to stop the leak than to try and stop fogging issues. And the only way to cure a leak is to find it by water testing !!!

    i have this in my del sols, its really annoying. Im also far to disorganised/impatient to wait for 2/3 minutes for the to clear! its really annoying though! Need to get the car in the garage and a dehumidifier in it or something?

    Will never find the leak though!

    Rain-X anti-fog ftw.

    As said though, there may be a leak somewhere or water collecting which causes it.

    I haven't myself, but was recommended one last year by a mate who had an old MGB and said it was a god send. I intend on getting on when i get paid.

    rear hatch seal poss

    roof rails poss

    rear light seals are a foamy material and i think they dry up and leak, just soak them with wd40 to get them back to shape then vaseline them to keep them moist(i love that word)
