ya, i dont have it...but i've heard about this.

i'd say, take it out...put it inside for a few days and let all the condensation out....then, maybe seal it with some silicon? i don't really know what's causing it, and i have no idea how this pod is designed on the inside....is it the gauges fogging up? if so, the try sealing those....i'm really not sure though.

Try this - don't know if it will work, but does with headlamps.

Take out the guage, remove the backlight bulb. Get a hairdryer, turn it on high... stick the guage in the heat for like 15 mins... put bulb back, guage back, and see if that helps.

Yep, it happens to my during cold nights as well. It goes away after like 10 - 15 min of driving. I usually just put my palm to the lens (to warm it up) and the fog clears if I don't want to wait.

Its common because of the condensation that builds up with the cooling temps. The boost gauge is attached to the engine by way of a vacume hose.

The Exhaust has the same type of condensation build up too.

I've known a few people that have installed Filters from fish tanks to stop the needle vibration while at vacume. Wonder if it would help the condesation too.

I've got a VDO also and have this same problem But I'm not concerned about it as my car sits in a garage a lot.
