Although it shouldn't need to be said, please make sure you remove it before driving off.

Think of the children.

Good value. Beats the newspaper I see people using out and about when it's cold.

Quickclear heated windscreen is even better though!

Yeah but at £1200 for one this beats it hands down-600 times down in fact!

Voting hot on the price, but I wouldn't use one. The past year or two I have tried these things and always give up after about three days. The trouble is that they work well on day 1, but then you have a soaking wet tarpaulin as the ice starts to melt, so you either stick it in the car or the garage. However, with the cold damp weather it doesn't dry properly and when evening comes, you have to put a partially wet tarpaulin back on your windscreen. Next morning, you get ice forming underneath it and so the cycle continues..

I guess they're good if you have a heated garage, or an understanding partner who let's you dry off a soaking tarp in the house!

Very well put. I won't be investing.


HOT from me !!

it doesnt look like a tarpaulin to me though , its looks like a waterproof insulated cover ,

These are a nightmare when they stick to the car on very cold mornings. Then were do you put it to dry out?

I'll stick to my ford with a heated screen ;-)

Cold and frosty from me

Kettle of hot/not boiling water ftw

I use a bit of cardboard then put it in the boot to dry out.

If you have a heated garage then why do you need one?? lol

Best for people who dont keep their car on the street, otherwise i guarantee it will get nicked if you have it on the outside in winter.

When I saw this thread, I thought it was going to be about windscreen insurance. I feel daft now. I hope nobody finds out.

Couldn't you just take it into the car with you and let the cabin heaters do their thing during the day?

That's all I do with my similar one (bought from aldi years ago) just stick it in the pasenger footwell and flick the heater dial to 'feet'.

good price , but nothing can help my rubbish old Yaris, it sets solid in a block of ice every winter lol.
