My commute to work happens at night, and last night I realized my lights weren't very bright. Even with the brights on I had a hard time seeing. So today when I got home I got out some cleaning products and cleaned up the head and tail lights, and for good measure I wiped down the bow tie...gotta keep it classy. Never have I seen such a filthy car look so sexy, so mean. It kind of reminds me of a soldier covered in mud getting ready for battle...

For the record, I'm waiting for the temp to raise above freezing to clean her up. We've been sub 32degrees for two weeks now and no plans in the next 7 days to get above ......is it spring yet??

Yep, I regularly clean my headlights in the winter.

We haven't had a day above freezing in weeks. Warmest it's been recently has been 28*F, and that was accompanied by a 20 mph wind.

My wife came home from work the other day complaining that the headlights on her Sonic we're not very good and she wanted brighter bulbs. I asked her did she turn on her driving lights too? She said yes but they were not very good. I said today before you leave for work why dont you try cleaning your headlights and you're driving lights and see how that works out for you coming home tomorrow night. Well she cleaned them and was amazed at how bright they were. I guess she did not expect for headlights to be that filthy already.

I used to have those little headlight wipers on my Volvo. The funny thing was they never worked when it was actually cold...

It'd be nice if the Cruzen with heated mirrors had washer jets for the headlights though - I've seen them on other GM vehicles.

We had here a law that all cars do have the headlight washers. A lot of them were using those small wipers, but there was also a lot with some kind of nozzles where the pressurized water-detergent-spirits mixture came out to the lights cleaning them. The pumps for that were different than windshield washers pumps having more pressure. I did like those pressurized washers a lot. But then came EU and the law was cancelled, so now we have here many cars without those washers. And Cruze is one of them. Sadly. I am wondering if there is not any producers anywhere making a readily installed kits to get that feature to the Cruze. Maybe not. Still I'm planning to do it myself after the car gets a bit more age, not before I'm sure I will not spoil anything, not even the warranty.

We spent this time last year in Orlando, never seen so many clean cars in my life. Car wash places have been closed for the last several weeks anyway, but wouldn't do a darn bit of good if they were washed. Would be just as dirty when driving a couple of blocks.

Always have to clean my head lamps and windshield. Was thinking yesterday, was a good thing I did not have to drive down to Milwaukee like I did exactly two weeks ago. A miracle the roads were clear when they finally could get a flight home. If like yesterday, top speed would have been 25 mph.

Weird weather, normally doesn't snow during subzero weather, getting hit with everything nature has to throw at us. Wind chill factors are 45 degree below zero, all the schools are closed today, plus the fresh snow.

Pouring salt on roads doesn't work either, does lower the freezing point, but not when the temperatures drop to 20 degrees below zero. What did melt coated the roads with ice.
