Today, those used A1 alloys were treated to a new pair of front tyres and the alignment re set. Moved from 215/45/16 to 205/50/16 for more efficiency and comfort. Speedo is now 100% with the gps so 70 is 70. No rubs. Will do rears next month as they have some life in them still. Quieter and steering/ braking much better after alignment.

Not sure about my Webasto from today. Temp was 8 degrees when I started the car so wasn't expecting anything, but it went down to 7 degrees within half a mile. Not sure if it kicked in or not, I didn't get any appreciable heat through and then the outside temp went back up anyway. I suppose any heat at that point is better than I should have been expecting. Should be colder here tomorrow, I'll find out on startup for sure.
 
second that, had to scrape the ice this morning, not a lot but had to remove before I could see out of the passenger side front window. Webasto kicked in after a few seconds and I turned the heated seats to No3, warm as toast after a min or so. I do love heated seats :)
EEh l dont know when I was a lad we never had a heater in the car ..we had couple of jumpers and two pair of kecks ..and if you were really lucky an hot water bottle to share ..and I thought all northerners were well hard ..๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Despite many comments about the Webasto kicking in at 7 degrees, I believe that it actually does it at 5, which is what mine does.

Needn't have worried. 6ยฐC showing on startup today and the Webasto came straight in. Judging from where I felt the first warmth coming through on my journey I reckon it was actuallly briefly active yesterday too.

Looking for an emoji for :toasty: but :cool: ( : cool : ) will have to do!

My one with the Webasto has cloth seats, so seat heating isn't really necessary. The other one has the electric element cabin heater and leather though, so I really appreciate the bum-warmers in that on a cold morning. I can recommend them for 'driech' also, from experience on the Skye social this year!

Today I did the sums and worked out my A2 has now paid for itself after just 10 weeks of ownership! So I now have a free car, even with all the money I have spent on it, bad news by the time I get back home tomorrow I will have hit the mileage limit my company sets for use of a personal car ๐Ÿ˜‚
