    For winter driving I set the heater on defrost and fan on lowest speed just to keep the windshield clear. And the vent open to let in outside air otherwise condensation from my breath just recirculates and gets blown onto the wind shield. For heat I wear a coat, scarf, and mitts.

      I thought your car looked bad enough in the initial pics 3 years ago that it should be crushed. I can't imagine how it looks now. I'm sure it's legally unsafe.
      Its not legally unsafe, but it hasnt been on the road for about a year now.

      Yeah, but i want to be warm in the car when its -40 out :/ maybe i am too picky but last week i drove both cars on the same day. So outside temps both at -27c and my festiva got the inside of the car up to -4c and the civic about +20c in the same distance. Thats a big difference. You feel warm in the civic, not the festiva. Even when i drove the civic in -40 the other day the inside got reasonably warm, the festiva doesnt.
      I wear thick winter clothes but i commute 2hrs a day or more for work and its nice to be warm.
