Unhappy 500E - condensation in lights

I'm noticing increasing condensation in my driving (high beam) lights and fog lights.

These are rarely used lights and I assume since it's about 10 years old now that condensation is natural.

Any ideas of how to remove the condensation? It does cause considerable refraction when the lights are used. Excuse to go to Euro 94 lights?

Thanks in advance.

If you remove the headlight assembly, then pry open the 4 big clips that hold the headlight "door" (aux. high beam lens) to the assembly, and you can clean it all up easily.

And either 92-93 or 94 E-codes are a nice upgrade-I'm just waiting for mine to arrive
