    Ever since I fitted hy HIDS the headlights have been misting up, any suggestions why?? Could it be the hole I needed to drill to fit them?? I have bought some lamin-x but want to get the lights sorted before I fit it, cheers.

    If you've drilled a hole & its open to the elements, try sealing this up & test, thats after getting a hair dryer in there to dry it out 1st, this is audi's technical method dealers have to use to clear misting units, thats official aswell lol.

    try putting those silicon bags you find in packaging in your headlights, it worked for me . they absorb moisture .
