Do OSS head lights fog up on washes?!

I think I wanna send my headlights out to get them nice and pretty. But I'm scared of them fogging up when I wash the car or it rains.
Anyone have experience to share!?

They are an extremely popular/reputable company so I think if there were condensation issues you read about them all the time. If I were you I would just do it and not worry about any issues

My headlights are 100% identical to OSS. Same brand LED rings, interior completely blacked out, etc. They were not put together by OSS but, rather, a user on this forum that did them. They are absolutely flawless with zero moisture inside ever.

I can't speak to the actual OSS assembled headlights, but my car is proof that the same products they use can be made to work perfectly without those issues.

It should bear mentioning that pressure washers are extremely bad for your car, let along aftermarket headlights. Mine did fog up a bit after an automatic pressure wash to be honest when I had my old 328 coupe. However, with hand washing and the worst downpours, no problems whatsoever.
