Cosy Car This Morning....

Recommended Posts

With winter on it's way (Come on! It's not that cold yet! :P ), I set about moving the last of the junk from the garage yesterday, so my little car now has garage space, after a summer sunning himself on the driveway.

Still got a fair more bits to get rid of/ tidy up, but it was a personal goal I've managed to reach!

Sad, but true....

:D :D :D

Lol Jay - this has taken a good year or more, simply because we didn't know if we'd have to move. Luckily we don't, and everything that was in the garage has gradually been sorted.

Dazwan - too right. I was getting fed up of scraping the car in the mornings! :D

I keep mine in the garage, completly ice free this morning, but obviously its still going to be cold. I didn't think about that, and half way down my road, driving along, sprayed the windscreen jets to clean and the water froze on contact, e.g. Arg!! can't see!! I won't be doing that again.

And there is anti-freeze in the water, thats why it could spray, I guess maybe I need it more concentrated?

Press a button on the remote whilst still in the house, it starts up, warms the car, defrosts the windows and it is still locked with the intruder alarm on.

The intellistart was £150 on top of the price of the alarm.

The whole system cost me £350. Mine is parked on a road at night, and I also work nights at various locations, so an alarm is invaluable.

£150 may seem quite a bit for a "gadget", but belive me, it's been worth every penny these last couple of days.

Remember, you can also set it to turn the a/c on in hot weather. (however you leave the car- a/c on, heater on, rear window heater on, that's what will still be turned on with the starter).

Sounds like an advert, but no, I don't work for 'em!!!

Well our garage is full of a half built kit car! Its getting more built each day tho as opposed to abandoned! :P

So defrost Skye I must... I have a Clifford Concept 650... mmm intellistart is deffo on my 'I would luuuuuuurrrrrve' list.... but cant afford :(

I presume doesnt invalidat cat1??? or does it? and what about the law that states you arent allowed to leave your car running unattended??

Thats the bit I am confused about

I think it does actually void your insurance JJ in some way? someone correct me if im wrong :unsure:

as for the leaving it running unattended - i think that is purely for insurance purposes - i.e you void insurance if you leave keys in the car - but with intellistart - the keys are in your hand and the car is running ;) (kinda conflicting info there but im sure it does in some way void the insurance)
