    Default Heated Windscreen

    You know how Ford have the patent on heated windscreens, and wont let Vauxhall have them.

    Well the Vectra-C BTCC car has a heated windscreen and costs £2000

    Just in case you were interested in one

    I don't need one of these... the hot air from my wife's mouth can scorch anything in a 10ft radius.

    Volvo have them, so do jag and land rover. Well nearly all of the ford owned/part owned car manufactures have them.

    Maybe as the race car isn't a road car they can use them? Bit like the full postcode not being available due to the cost.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Our old ('02 plate) work Renault Master van had one too. Played havoc with sat nav reception.

    You can get them made. The lads over on Performance Nova Group got some Nova ones made.

    Off for a search.

    *EDIT*
    Found details, They did a Group Buy had to have at least 10 ordered and were about £170 for tinted ones with a sunstrip. The company don't list a Vectra C/Signum.

    They do them for Chevette, Nova, Astra F, Corsa B, Corsa C and Cavalier?
