Nice and warm :emoji12: :emoji12:

I like the cold more than heat. So I love the winter time. And I like the long evenings, nice and cosy by the fire place.

It's completely abnormal to be this hot at the end of December. During the previous day it was 18C!! No snow in sight, not even close!

None of that here either but we dont really expect it except maybe some light icing at night. 10ºC here now which is like 6 or so degrees above average.

Here they also use beet juice, much saver for the cars. I hate salt, that's why I don't use the RS's in the winter. All the towns are salted, and the main roads are sprayed with beet juice. The old A4 is treated with Dinitrol, works perfectly against rust. Tough undercoating that stays flexible. Inside of the doors, boot lid and wheel wells are also treated with this stuff. Never ever going to rust. And suspension parts are powder coated. Sometimes you can't wash your car for months, no worries for us!
