That is exactly why I don't use de-icer! Would much rather spend a couple of minutes extra scraping the windows than get a few miles down the road and have to stop and do them again

I'm usually up and out by 3.30am and always let the car tick over whilst scraping the windows! My neighbours are used to me leaving at that time, and the Laguna's a hell of a lot quieter than my old Civic Type R which was missing a silencer
