I had this especially on my previous QQ, since the very beginning (so no damp filter logically).
Luckily for me it isn't a problem any longer on my new QQ even if I still do not have a wind screen heater in the front.

I made a video back then where you can clearly see how bad the problem is. Especially as it does steam up only seconds after driving off !!
Opening the windows slightly together with the windscreen blower on full heat and speed + aircon AND two of those moisture bags indeed does the trick!

Cold Air = moisture laden air. So there will be a short period of water vapour about unless it can be dried, hence Air Con on.

Living/Breathing humans don't help either..... :roll:

I checked under the roof glass the other day...run the screen back somewhat and voila - totally fogged. Case for double glazing?
