    As winter is appraoching I was wondering if my A4vhas heated windscreen washer jets, they have an electrical plug on them, does this mean they are heated? Any other way of knowing?

    That means they're heated as far as I'm aware.

    cheers guys, wondering if it's worth changing them to the fan spray type or not.

    They are 'on' all the time - although I'd have thought they would be linked to o/s temp. Which also suggests they might die as the car ages.
