    Mine is exactly the same - 2004 SRi 2.2, nearside headlight and foglight both misting up regularly. Been fobbed off by one local Vauxhall dealer, but I'm going to phone Vauxhall customer care to complian before my warranty is up....

    I've had this Vectra since it was 6 months old, and the headlights/foglights have never misted previously (believe me, I would have noticed - I wash this car very regularly).

    So I can't understand now why they should be misting up; something must have changed?

    So what do the stealers define as 'tolerances'?

    Sounds like an excuse to avoid paying out for a manufacturing fault to me......

    I was just about to say the same thing - i've only had condensation once, and that was after using the pressure washer at work.

    Mine cleared in a couple of hours though.....

    It's very common at this time of year
    Normally it is caused when the glass is very cold and the water used is very hot, in cold air
    The glass then ends up being heated on one side and cools on the other side
    The glass then cools rapidly from the air, and this causes the condensation on the dry side

    The solution is to wash the car using cool or warm water only, if the air temperature is cold

    The other cause is from using a jet wash, as this water passing over the glass also heats it up
