I remember when all the boy racers wanted this.

I find it pretty pointless and just a cheap gimmick.

When I park the car up, I prefer to leave it in gear anyways

Some car manuals tell you not to leave the car ticking over to warm up. They advise you to drive steady as soon as possible.

Probably best to clean the windows and get moving to warm the car up.

Diesels take a bit longer to warm up, especially in cold weather.

What car do you drive?

With BMWs, you can start the car, stop and remove the key, restart the engine without the key fob and get out and lock it with the engine running.

Ultimately the inside of the car needs to be a dry atmosphere. I find that if I wipe the condensation with a decent drying towel, then ensure that towel leaves the car with me at the end of every trip, dried on a radiator, then re-used - eventually there's no damp in the car to cause it. Of course if the car leaks like a sieve, then there is no hope :D

I believe there is also anti-fogging stuff you can put on the inside of glass.

Im pretty sure this was a big topic back when i was on the VXR owners forum.

I am sure that it stated somewhere that if anything was to happen to the car and this is fitted, it is possible for the insurance to get out of a claim somehow (i know you said you can see it, but if someone saw the opportunity). Cannot remember the in's and outs though as it was a while ago. I suffer the same problem as you, as in getting into my car and it steaming up. I believe that most of the anti-fog products dont work so probably would solve the issue.

Think its one of those things that we just have to live with :(
