Just as un-fun in your neighbouring town, did at least get a pop on the slip road onto the A421 so that cheered me up inbetween the slippery bits  ;D

    -26 here today and my neighbor can't get the door on his BMW 5 series open.. Had to climb in from one of the back doors :P Not sure about the Abarth, it's under a mountain of snow and ice...  ;D

    Snow works as an insulator in cold conditions so unless you have to drive the car today it's better to not remove the snow from the car yet.

    Was -10 on Thursday morning at my parents (Cairngorms), so the washers wouldn't work.  In the process of defrosting, puled the bonnet lever, which broke out of the catch of the handle.  A quick removal of two bolts and a replacing of the cable had the bonnet open.

    Took another hour to defrost the washers/pipes etc - useless design.  Washer jet adjusters pushed themselves out under pressure.   ::)

    You'll need new ones now I'm afraid they break something inside so they'll push out everytime you use them, bleeding useless design as you say  :thumbd:

    -7 tonight and my rear passenger side light cluster gave up the ghost  :( returned to life half way home though

    Both my washer jets have bust now, for the second time. I'm really sick of this, happened on my bro's Stilo and my old Panda. Please Fiat, get a grip and change this useless design.

    If i can't clean my windscreen and crash as a result of not seeing I'm seriously going to sue them!  >:(

    The clutch has started squeeking until the car warms up. The wife's Golf GT had a problem yesteday as well which resulted in wipers and washers packing up and the bonnet catch has bust so the bonnet won't shut now.
