BMW screen wash is rated down to -12 at a 1 part screen wash 2 parts water dilution so there shouldn't be an issue even when using it at the maximum dilution. I just got in from work and it was -3 and my screen wash worked fine (1:2 here) with no rear demister workingnowtta60 wrote:Does the i3 have them?
I've ordered the winter pack, but don't recall any heated jets mentioned. Likewise it's not mentioned on the standard UK spec I just looked up.
My current ICE is the first car I've had in a while that doesn't have them and temps were -2C / 28F this morning . On my 60 mile drive to work I ended up having to stop and get a bottle of water and resort to manually washing the salt off the windscreen. As I’m in an ICE car, (and an icy one) sitting still for a few minutes managed to thaw out the jets whilst I was in the shop . Well for another 10 minutes after which they promptly froze again once I got up some speed. Had to pull in and do a manual wash again as I was driving east directly into the rising sun
If they aren't included what do you do to thaw them out – considering there’s no rumbling heat generator of an engine to act as a defroster.
Anyone fitted a set of heated jets themselves?
Or have I just got to stick 50:50 anti-freeze in the reservoir?
Don't wait till march to get a 15 plate. In that time you could have saved enough fuel to buy a £150 dateless plate. That's my theory anyway. No one will know my initials aren't really something like A3 XDG. LOL Or you can get a 13 plate for £399. And make up such nonsense as takes your fancy. EV 13 xxx are available.PluviaPlumbum wrote:Nowtta, you raise a good point there, which I hadn't until now considered, hopefully it will be a standard feature on all vehicles, it should certainly have been included in a 'Winter pack' which is now standard for 2015 builds. Hopefully I'm in/on the same boat as you ! I have elected to wait until March 1st though, might as well make it a 15 plate now.
Yes, same here. My given delivery week was late Feb, so will probably wait until March 1st, too.PluviaPlumbum wrote: I have elected to wait until March 1st though, might as well make it a 15 plate now.
