Quote from: MiniDave on October 04, 2022, 02:36:35 PMI had a Beetle in cold Colorado - I found the key to getting heat in the car in town (same with my later 914) was to downshift a gear....run in third even when you could run in 4th.Tho I seriously doubt if it matters anymore as the only people who still have Beetles probably don't get them out of the garage in winter!That said, my Beetle did great in snow - but so did my Mini, even with boat trailer tires on it! ;D

BTW, those gas heaters worked great - instant heat as soon as you turned it on!And I thought what the US did to the bumpers on our cars in the 70's and 80's was pretty bad, but what Canada did to the poor Mini was way worse! ::)
