    your coolant leak could be linked to the fogging.
    carpets wet? any moisture in the centre vents, behind radio, down side of transmission tunnel? you may find that you are blowing steam onto the window as the heater matrix may be leaking, not enough to flood but enough to lose water in the resevoir. I had this on a 90 quattro until it popped and emtied the coolant system onto my feet and turned the cabin into a turkish bath.
