    -9 also last night Nilz, on the way home after work! And apart from a frozen door, the S3 just fired up and took me home with no problems.

    -15C in Scottish Borders this morning. Highest it got to today was about -9 & was down to -12 when I picked the kids up about 4:30pm. Bit chilly, I even put a scarf on.

    Have you noticed though that the software for the DIS is a bit daft in that the frost symbol goes off below -5? That's sloppy/lazy coding or what...

    Obviously no danger of ice on the roads below -5 then

    My mum had -18 last night, started to freeze the water inside the radiators...

    We've not made it into double figure negatives yet, but then we've not been into the positives at all for a couple of weeks either...

    Peugeots do the same. "Ice risk" disappears after -5

    -11 this morning.

    The missis little fiesta was frozen on the inside and outside, i had to scrape the inside windscreen!

    Took me 25 minutes to de ice and warm the car up.

    Nilz, noticed the same with my A4 mate, could have sworn my car had heated washer jets, but damn things were frozen solid the other morning.

    I know, I've always thought that as well. Nobbers... Time to 'accidentally' crash due to there being no threat of ice, and sue Audi for millions....

    my S3 has heated washer jets, although i have to wonder if that is just marketing department speak for 'eventually the heat from the engine will melt it!'

    It was -10 in Stratford last night, it's the first time I've seen frost on the insides of the windows lol, and any condensation built up on the windows turned to ice aswell as I was driving the family home.

    Common sense kicks in at -5C perhaps?

    Exactly; I think by the time the temperature is below -5deg, you really don't need a warning symbol to tell you it's icy.
