um either leave your lights on for a bit or pull your car into a garage for a bit and pop the hid out of the headlamp and let it sit.

I had this problem when i installed my angel eyes on my 09wrx, but mines was because i didn't reseal it properly and it fogged badly, had to do it right the second time and it never fogged again.

But I believe the newer models aren't suppose to have this problem anymore, since they have the covers sealed up with o-rings and the design change again.

But if its minimal i wouldn't worry about it. Just make sure it doesn't fog horribly otherwise it will be a pain waiting to get all the condensation out, thats if your inpatient like me

i had this problem on my brand new 2008 (stock lighting) so i think your point is invalid, although theres always a possibility..
