    Condensation in headlights after HID install

    Decided to convert to HIDs in my 17 Cruze with existing projectors. I think I did a **** good job on the install and made sure the house was sealed. A few days later which is today I notice a good amount of condensation in the headlights. What gives? Also, I’ve seen people post on here that 9005 is the correct bulb size for this DIY. I would like to disagree with that since 9005 is apparently the hi beam bulb size for this car. According to sylvania, a 9012 dual beam bulb should be used. The light output is worse than halogens with these bulbs.

    If you seal it, with for example 60° dew point air in it, and a couple nights later it gets down to 30°, condensation happens.

    If you didn't seal the factory vents, it'll get a little foggy as temps drop in the fall but that will eventually go away naturally.
