-Passenger side power window regulator slipped off the window because window was frozen to the weatherstripping.

-Passenger side door lock isn't operating from when locked via remote.

-Drove around for 20 minutes without heat because the fans were frozen.

-Chilled tires, frozen suspension making the car feel like a Flintstone mobile until it 'warms up' after a mile or so.

-Scraping the ice off the windshield and dusting off the snow in work clothes then going to work to find out you can't do anything because there isn't a DBA to create a copy of PROD database into DEVL, one hour at the client wasted as well as above time spent on other items listed, aggrivating.

-Knowing that Spring always comes just before I lose my sanity... priceless.

Anyone else have any winter issues with their MkIV? I gotta give mine a little credit, once warmed up she runs like a champ and still makes me smile.

I threw a CEL because the chip is dumping too much fuel in when it dips below 10 degrees...throws a "System too Rich" code. Im just glad I work for the dealer, and can erase at my leisure. Other than that, no problems. Gotta love heated recaros.

All 4 door were frozen shut on Monday AM. A little spray-on windshield de-icer fixed it right up.

I shoulda known you'd bring up chinese food again. Sheesh!

Oh I forgot to add the washer fluid out and when I went to replace that while at "On The Run" I saw my freaking CAI disconnected from the MAF. Argh! Thank goodness for the screwdriver in the spare tire area! Shame on me for not tightening it enough in the first place.
