    Check the centre of the bulkhead behind the inlet manifold. Remember, your engine takes up a lot more space so you will have to look harder.

    Also, I would not recommend the likes of rain-x on the inside of the screen. It can be hard enough to get a good clean screen after using it on the outside.

    Sounds like a moisture problem. I had a leaking gasket on the hard pipes that supply the heater matrix on my 318is. Wasn't leaking alot but enough to cause a problem.

    Check all around the vehicle carpets to ensure they are dry and also the boot well and battery compartment. Any water inside the car will cause an issue

    could also try conditioning your rubber seals around the doors and windows to make them seal better.

    If you can't find anything to clear it, then try the stuff they sell for defogging bathroom mirrors.

    Might sound like an abvious thing but have you got the air vent set to recycle or fresh air? If it is on re-cycle you will also get more fogging.

    When de-misiting the windows open the side window slightly, this will allow warm moist air to escape as fresh air is pumped in and will help clear the windows.

    If all else fails try get a loan of a de-humidifier for a day and stick that in the car to dry it out.

    Hope that helps

    If you want a cheap anti-fog solution, try the dehumidifier as noted above and buff your windows with half a potato inside then polish off with a clean soft dry cloth........ works a treat. It could also be your seats, they may not feel damp but foam can hold a lot of unseen/felt moisture, the dehumidifier should sort the problem out though.
