Years ago I bought one like this. It even has a LR logo on it. Works great and always goes in whatever LR I'm driving in a given winter.

Take the top off...did that years ago and haven't looked back...

(my hardtop windows used to fog up a lot whenever it rained)

Aligning the doors properly helped my doors A LOT.

I just keep a bunch of towels for drying the inside of the windshield off when i have the top off in the rain. They also work really well removing the fog from the drivers side window. As for the passenger side have her wipe them down when you can't see out.

Just using dish soap on the glass and buffing it clear again will work as well as Fog-X... Catcrap (the product, not the by-product!) works but would be very tedious on something that size. The best suggestion if you are just getting occupant condensation is really the one to fit a small dash fan, a lot cheaper than adding side vents. My solution is engineering a 1" or so alloy tube going from door to door with end vents and holes along the top to replace the factory demisters, but then I am not using any of factory dash at all.

If you spend a lot of time in cold climates it is hard to beat fitting a diesel fired air heater, then you can pre-warm the inside of the vehicle or keep it warm while sleeping with the engine off. You see them on Ebay pulled out of big-rigs for about $300 or so, perhaps less if you keep an eye out and for just heating the air they out-do the coolant ones (though I plan on fitting both).

I am a little worried about the heat (or cold) since my girlfriend will be in the car and she tends to get a bit annoying in the cold.
An additional layer of clothes might help...

as the heater works really well (CUT) Any remedies to the fogged up glass?
Just turn the above heater on.
I never had any trouble and it always demisted the windscreen in no time.
For the side windows, I carry a clean rag.
A girlfriend is useful as she might wipe the passenger's window which is not easy to reach.
