PEAK windshield wash and de-icer... alcohol as needed... (below -20 F)

When you get your *heater* going... just don't let that washer fluid get very warm... if your windshield truly has ice/snow on it... it will crackkkkkkkk

You will have to run some kind of anti-freeze type of fluid regardless of having a tank heat for the fluid because it is the lines that freeze up on the washers. This is something to be conscious of when traveling from warm to cold climates. I have had many times I forgot to prime the lines with fluid before getting into Idaho and having frozen washer lines and a mess from trucks hitting me on the road.

I'm coming from a 2000 VW Jetta TDI, HUGE following for these cars and they've been doing heated washer fluid for years. Kind of a popular upgrade for the TDI crew.
