On the 5 you can change it so its takes the air from outside never have a problem.Only when its on recirculation I get the misting up.

Normally changing the Pollen filters sorts this out but since I'm so new to the Evo's I don't know if these have these fitted!!
When switching between AC and normal blowers the windows sometime steam up rather quickly usually after restarting the car and the AC/Blwoer mode changes...
But if there ia a pollen filter I'd recommend changing it.

I swear it's cause of the weather. Wet on the bottom of your feet will cause the windscreen to mist surely. The carpets must be wet constantly.

My Lancer was the same. Worst car I've had for steaming up. The Climate Control doesn't help, heat is either on or off. Hot it's fine, then it goes cold when the temp hits the setting, instantly steaming up.

Possibly your heater matrix mate.

My windows started steaming up in december, got worse & worse eventually I was driving around with the heaters on full as that was the only way I could see out.

Turned out my matrix was knackered.

Should always put the aircon when demisting and really at all temperatures. Even if its winter and you have the heaters on the AC/Climate should be on. It drys the air when it passes over the evaporator. At the back of the evaporator will be a little rubber hose that comes out from the bulkhead in the engine bay that kets the oisture that is drawn from the air out. If this is blocked with muck it can back up the pipe and cause damp in the car.
