Thread: De-Icing

    De-Icing

    Which way do you de-ice your cars in the morning? Do you pour boiling water over the car? Spray de-icer everywhere? Warm it up for 10mins? scrape like a [email protected]$%A#D or another way?

    Re: De-Icing

    Given the sheer lack of ventilation in the Polo and Golf (and the fact i'm out at 0530h in the morning) I scrape like fook then do one before it freezes over.

    Looks like its going to be a bit more entertaining next week though...

    I always start it up and leave for ten mins, you get the benefit of having a warm cabin and also the engine has warmed up a bit
