Brilliant Poll... Up to March of this year, SEAT sold just over 44,000 Ateca's and Saggy's trying to prove 1/3 of them have heated windscreens.

That's just under 15,000 cars Saggy - so far you've got three !!! Only 14,997 to go... :lol:

It's best leaving polls to the likes of John Curtice.

Seriously... A much better idea for a pole would be how many people have ordered a heated windscreen after having already had a heated windscreen in their previous car because my suspicions are that just like auto-parking - people think 'hey that sounds like a good idea' and fork out £££'s only to find that when they've lived with them for a few years, in reality they hardly ever use these toys.
I'm in - another heated windscreen here ! And IMO the best value option at £150 on the Excellence trim - not really a £££ option if you ask me. Much use made during a west of Scotland winter, BTW ! :D

He's busy posting loads of very complicated technical stuff on one of the other forums. Mostly about modifying the software with OBDeleven, plus more than a few threads about how crap the Ateca is because he can't stretch out in the passenger seat - Oh, and don't forget the leather.

Sadly, no one else seems to be reading it so he doesn't get many opportunities to patronise anyone :lol:

I couldn't agree more Mcderms. I've never had a car with a heated windscreen before, however I've always been envious when my wife had a car with one!

I often leave the house around 6am, and not having to spend 5 to 10 minutes waiting for my windscreen to clear won't take me long to recoup what I paid for this option when I put a value on the time I will save!

I've got it and think its great, not just for ice/snow but when the windscreen is misted up. Clears it in minutes :D

I've ordered one as I do the school run then commute to work so don't want to be spending time scraping ice and waiting for the windscreen to defrost on those cold winter mornings. Or sitting in the company car park, after everyone has left, still waiting for it to clear 😂

I've got a qashqai at the moment and it takes forever
