We take a deep breathe before getting in if it is cold because jeez they are a shock
but they soon warm up so it's not too bad....I can't comment on what they will be like in the
summer though, We live in England remember....Summer never seems to come anymore  ::)  ;D

Malc text me earlier saying there was snow on her windscreen this morning so if it was cold enough for snow then
I bet the seats were icey cold....if he wasn't 100% awake when he left I bet the coldness certainly done the job lol  ;D

    hahaha well i guess thats one side to having leather seats - when its cold it wakes you up :P

    as for the car car warming up quickly! certainly does! my old mjet took 5 times as long (no joke) to get a little warm! - this because it was a deisel? (lower running temperature of engine?)

    Jet warms up very quickly but our Laguna is very slow to warm up but she is an R reg
    so she's a bit old now I guess but she has lovely velor seats so even when it's -5 the
    seats are still welcoming...unlike Jet's this morning  ;D

    It wasn't just the seats, I had a problem getting hold of the wheel this morning. Actually read -8 on my screen at one point  :o it never gets that cold down here.

    Yes they did thank you.
    Malc collected Jet yesterday morning & we haven't heard a single squeek (yet)
    They also lubricated the OSF seat belt stork as it was sticking slightly but they couldn't
    find a fault with the oil smell so we will just wait & see if it happens again.

    On a different note I do have one thing I really must say as I am a little disapointed...
    Malc took Jet in ealry on Monday morning but they didn't start working on her until after lunch,
    this is fair enough as they are probably busy but when he collected her yesterday she was filthy! 
    She had been there sitting in their car park between 8.30 & 2pm (thats when they started work on her)
    yet nobody had thought to wash her...When I worked at the Toyota dealership which is owned by the
    same body (Westover) all the customer's cars were washed & hoovered before they were worked on or
    straight after they came out of the workshop if they went in first thing. 
    I know that she was taken to another location to have this work done but I know they have valeters there too
    so someone should have atleast made a token effort.
    Malc seems ok about this as he collected her first thing Tuesday morning so Westover Sports Cars couldn't
    have cleaned her in time but she had been in their possession all day on Monday so in my eyes this isn't very
    good on Westover's part.
    'Slap on the wrists for Westover Sports Cars' from me i'm affraid. (Kelly)
