It was -3C last night here in North Yorkshire and we had several frosty mornings before Christmas. But granted, this winter hasn't really been that cold in the UK yet.

Heated seats are also great if you've got lower back ache though :)

Ah, the far north! I don't think we have gone below 7C yet - was about 10 this morning.

You're joking Maby, where are you? I'm in Newbury, admittedly out in the sticks (or as our Australian friends may call it "woop woop") and noticed there was ice on my PHEV Wednesday/Thrusday morning as I got on my bike to ride to work - lol, i'm so cheap i'd rather ride 35 miles than spend the £1.20 :)

Well, admittedly, my days of getting up early are done - I'm self employed now and work from home, so I seldom see 8am! :lol:

Where are all you guys??? It has not been cold enough in Southern England to need seat heating at all this year! I don't think I've seen even light frost on the windscreen yet and I'm still going out in a lightweight gilet.


My preference is to be toasty warm (perhaps I'm a bit nesh) and if the OAT goes below about 10 degrees on goes the seat heating. On my last vehicle I used to run the heating flat out, as it had a conventional ICE it was like free heat :lol: but with the PHEV I don't run the climate higher than 24 as I assume it will burn electricity or force the ICE to turn on.

Wow 24 degrees! I don’t set climate control in cars above 19 as I find 20 too hot! :lol:

Actually I don't like climate control, I have it on a number on vehicles and find that it actually feels cooler than the display says. I much prefer the old fashioned dial where I simply turn the heat up to a level that I am comfortable with.

Perhaps I should go for a dip in a frozen lake after a drive :D
