send them back for a replacement... it sounds to me like they're not 100% sealed and that could cause future problems...

My first pair of ZKW's fogged like crazy...I spoke to Matt at Umnitza and he sent me a new pair...

The second set still fog up once in a while, but just a tiny bit around the very edge...because they crack these things to install the DDE's (if you have those) the environment inside can never be 100%. Mine seems to only fog a little when I am driving in snow and it builds up on the glass with the lights on....but it is pretty minor....

i just sent an email to info@umnitza.com and this is what he said. "This happens one time usually and goes away. Make sure the metallic clips are in place on both headlights." which they are and..."Your fogging issue will go away. It happens once every season when the barometer changes." i find it easy to trust him, but what happens if this keeps occuring??? how long is the warranty for?

When I had the problem with mine, I found it quickest to just call him and talk it out...e-mail takes forever with the back and forth...just call and ask for Matt. he's always been there, and actually has been the one that has picked up the phone most of the times I have called...
