Other than a wire mesh on open hood vents of vrs E92's, what's another alternative for blocking rain/car wash parked?

So after letting my headlight bask in the sun all day yesterday, there have been 0 signs of condensation since. Driving around at night with the sub 40 degree weather, hosing it down today and nothing.
This is the first time I can actually say I'm pleased with these lights. Umnitza had actually done a good job on the original reseal...if only the cap on the back of the headlight had been installed correctly, none of this would have happened.
For once I'm happy, and it appears I can finally move on with these headlights.

Coilovers being delivered tomorrow

It's actually really simple. Nice lil DIY with basic tools.

They are Hyper Silver and have normal wear. One of the rear wheels needs to be repaired because there is a crack. Which reflects on the price I posted. They're 19x8.5 +30 Front and 19x10 +37 Rear.
