Wrt tyres, I found rainsports horrible, but love my Michelin ps3s. They were only ~£5 more expensive per corner.

Poodle, how long do you find it takes to get heat from your blowers with the new pre-heater plugs in?

Thanks for the replies regarding the spoiler guys, I will keep my eye out for one!

about 5-10 mins average, depending on the severity of the frost.

And are we talking 'some heat' after 5-10 mins or very hot? I would say after 5-10 mins my coolant temp is coming up to 70C and I can feel some heat...

Sounds like you have the smaller phase 2 spoiler.  The phase 3 one is a bit deeper and just has two bolts through the metal above the window.

No you can fit a p3 spoiler to a p2 using stumpy self tappers with foam washers in the original p2 holes in the glass. Holds much better and your not left with 4 holes in the glass.

Fair enough. The OP has a ph3 tailgate already though...so the easiest option for him is to just buy a ph3 spoiler and either use the 2 standard bolts above the screen or bond it on.
