Isn't it, though? I saw it in person the other day and was well impressed.

Bet you're glad you sorted the heaters, hey Pete?

Too right! I gave the whole system another flush for good measure yesterday and they’re positively toasty now.



The frostbite on my nose still hasn’t gone from driving it to the MOT though :))

Completely blocked matrix, I had nothing to lose so I connected a hose to it and hit it with full mains pressure! after about 30 seconds the blockage started to pass and after all the rad weld/crud had stopped coming out I back flushed it and connected it back in.
This worked quite well, but they were still only lukewarm, and seemed to get worse when the stat opened.
So I bought some Wynns coolant flush and ran that through it for the day, followed by another thorough flush of the matrix and radiator. They're pretty much what I would expect now, and I haven't heard the fans kick in since either.

Ugh... Stop!

I'm proper jealous, and whilst it has *just* dropped below freezing Daaan Saaaf, the closest we've had to snow is very, very cold drizzle.
