    What about getting a seat heater? I am seriously considering one for the TA and our Jeep. There are many around online for about $100, install in the seat like factory. I have driven cars with these, and they are almost like sex on cold days. (not actual sex in the cold, LOL!)

    I don't drive my WS6 in the Winter, it's under a cover in my garage. I drive an 05 Trailblazer in the Winter. It's still F**king cold in Cincinnati, and it's snowing right now.

    I will drive mine in the winter, as long as the roads don't have salt on them. Cold, no problem, except the cold seats!

    And it has been snowing all morning, not quite enough on the ground yet for snowballs tho.

    I hate you lol.

    So would one of these block heaters work for my 3.4 v6? http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...m=block+heater

    And how hard would it be to install? I don't even know where to find a freeze plug lol.

    I had an aftermarket block heater on my WWII jeep that set in the lower radiator hose. It worked great.

    remote starts can be installed on a manual most shops wont do it because of laibility risk aka the owner of the car if you leave the car in gear you can hurt the car or someone else walking in front of it

    Hog rings can be a PITA. I know, I hog ringed my own nose between my eyes, gave myself 2 black eyes in the process as well as the gash in the bridge of the nose. I was putting new seat covers and cushions on my '67 GTO in 1996, pulling like hell and slipped. Well, let's just say that a hog ring in the pliers at your face is not fun.

    However, at work I have replaced a couple seat heaters on customers cars, with the old cover going back on and used seat cushion it is much easier! With Christmas coming, I don't have the spare cash for that luxury yet. I did a Kentucky heat yesterday, warmed a towel over the furnace grate and sat on it for the drive to work, it was nice.
