Put some neat washing up liquid on your sponge and wipe the windscreen inside with it, allow to dry, no more misting up

There's nothing wrong with vacuum cleaner attachments replacing the screen vents ... Specially on a Series!

Contained within each DefenderVENT is an additional outlet that channels warm air away from the screen vent to mini vents located in the ends of the dashboard.

This is why it's so expensive , it includes something that generates warm air , something rarely seen in a Defender

My dash has wide vent cut down to fit the small vent slots on my dash.

You could make that easily, I would use a 'T' or 'Y' connector in the tube that connects to the screen vents the. Take a piece of pipe out to the sides. Easy.

Not that I can be arsed to do that of course

Why would you want the limited warm breath of your Landy spread even thinner around the cab?
I keep a condensed area (apx 3 sq inch) of warmth on my left leg. Its lovely!
