    Just a thought have you checked youve got the covers on the back of the headlamps on properly.

    How are the wires from the ballast getting to the HID bulbs? If you've cut a hole in the round rubber cover that goes on the back of the headlight unit, that's where damp air's getting in. Try sealing the hole with silicone sealant.

    If you've not fitted the rubber cover at all, you have no chance of keeping the headlamp dry.
