    Default Cold Morning!

    First frost of the year where I live this morning. 2.5 degrees, and I had to scrape the screen for the first time.
    There were 3 good bits, though.
    1.Walking back to my car after moving SWMBO's -is there a cooler sight that rear lights shining through the condensation clouds from twin exhausts, or am I just sad?
    2. The lovely view as I cut across country, with the sun rising over Sharpenhoe Clappers (anyone local to me will know what I mean)
    3. HEATED SEATS!!!!!!

    I totally agree with the twin exhausts!

    Mine are the same, only seen this happen once though, and that was in August!!!!!!

    As the car is new to me, it was good to see the glow plug light pop up for the first time too lol...

    Not quite as cold here - 7 degrees at 6:30 and now a beautiful day! If I wasn't sorting out some promotional material etc. I'd be out taking pics!

    Gotta agree with what you said though Phil...

    1) I love seeing the swirl of the exhaust in the lights when you look through the rear view mirror!

    2) Also had a cross-country drive and although it was initially dark when I set off the sun was coming up as i drove along - bootiful!

    3) Oh yes - heated seats!! Very nice to have when you have leather seats!

    Exactly on all 3.....

    Running the sigbum today, so i loved the seats this morning....

    It must have been a bit 'lunar' over by the clappers.....it was a bit that way heading out through woburn..
