Maybe I don't have the condensation issue because I have them off ?

Just a variable here that I thought I would introduce, although it should not matter.
I have mine set to on and it seems to be better with them on worse when off but it could be the climate where I live.

I used swimming pool filter gasket lube. ( Jacks 327 mult-lube) So far its been still fogging but no water droplets. The fogging drys quickly on its own. I will keep you all posted.
Did the dealer happen to tell you the part number even if they had to do the work?

Wait...what?

I was watching TV, and then I saw this, first my jaw dropped, then I ROTFL.

Well, it seems all the new 300's have this problem, even the ones they use in their own commercials!

You beat me to it! I had some stuff DVR'd yesterday and I went over this commercial a few times to make sure I was seeing this right.

I wonder if they bothered incorporating the vent covers that were changed out in the 2011 - 2012 300s?

Doesn't look like it.

Well its been over a month now. I have been through several rainy days and variations in temperature. Except for a slight fog once in a while that drys quickly, PROBLEM SOLVED!
