    Basically , in the morning its got that much condensation you have to wait like 10mins for the car to warm up to get the heaters on hot.

    Was wondering whats causing this? Guessing theres a leak in the car somewhere!

    Any prone places?

    Mine is the same mate. I just start the car usually then go and have a cup of tea while it warms up.

    there are things you can buy to treat the windows to reduce this, i think Civics are just shit when it comes to condensation on the windows

    Mine's exactly the same, still fogged up to hell while all the cars around it are totally clear in the morning.

    One of my mates made the point that it probably does it because it's better sealed, so if he's right it's kind of a good thing.

    anyone got their back end stripped out??

    that will cause it to mist up bad yo cos theres no layer between the metal floor and quarters etc to keep inbetween the cold ass air outside and the interior inside wat happens is the air then gets cooled inside the car and kinda like a fridge the core of the car will get colder than the outside resulting in the air condesing and making a bloody river of your windscreen mine was a bastard this morning looked like morning dew inside the car BASTARD COLD WEATHER

    Mine is seriously bad for this because the rear lights leak water in to the boot.

    I just use the ICE scrapers rubber edge to wipe the water off the windows.

    Also make sure "recycle" isn't switched on.

    I've also noticed with the air con that it works better on the cold setting than on warm, maybe give that a try with your normal heater!

    yeah cold works best without air con too, but what to do if its frozen on the inside like this morning? My window isnt a very good seal, plus no interior
