There was at least 3/4" of ice buildup on the radio antenna.
Wow!! Not nice! As some say, "ice belongs in cocktails"! As others on here have posted, I think the one weak link is the wiper/defroster/buildup issues, it does sucketh! You have to put so much heat out the defrost that you can get uncomfortable in the car. Heated wipers or windshield bottom portion or something!! I put the Bosch Icons on and like them but the position of the wipers is so low on the windshield! Arrgghh Dave
