Would you happen to have a write up on doing this, along with some pictures?

I did this to mine and it worked just fine. I put a 1/8" hole towards the center of the car towards the very bottom edge worked perfectly

Same issue with mine. Both headlights got that way. After changing the headlights a few times/yr. I finally decided to try drilling the hole since one of the lights looked like a fish tank. It's been just over a yr and haven't had any headlights go out. I still see the moisture though.

Same issue with my 2008 Chevy Equinox. After years of being frustrated with foggy headlights and having to replace the bulbs about every 6-8 months, I got new headlight assemblies on both sides last year and it made the car look newer. It wasn't cheap (about $85 for each assembly) but so far the condensation has not come back.
