-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 :unsure:

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

Quick question, does the S3 have heated washer jets??

Checked the car earlier, the screenwash was not frozen, but nothing was coming out AT ALL!!!

-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.:cold:

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....:readit:

Up the owls!
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. :cold:
