Not a bad price really considering! May look into it if installation of the heating part is ok!

but if you got a stripped out corsa, with no heater's, that wont work...

a misted up screen in in the rain, whilst giving it bean's around a track, is defo not a good idea

I'm planning on getting one for mine. Not sure what they're like, but seeing as I need to replace my windscreen anyway and the cost isn't too bad it seems worth a shot. I was going to get mine from HHMS though...

Yeah Harry Hockley (HHMS) do them, about same price as Heaterscreens.co.uk (link above) he probably gets them from them anyway!

Its not an OE item, window suppliers wont supply them... At least its not a UK OE item...

I have no heaters or anything, thats why i wanted one but i can get a normal screen supplied and installed for 70 so may go for that and see how i get on! Dont plan on doing many track days in the rain anyway-

i love my heated windscreen was so handy when we had the silly cold weather. everyone in work car park had to wait ages to leave and i took 30 seconds to get out

as ste said, very handy if it mists up whilst on track.

only down side i've heard is if you have a crack in the screen, the heat from the wires inside the glass can cause the windscreen to shatter or cause spider cracks.

Where did you get yours from Ben? Was this on your Corsa B?

As obviously my fiesta has one, and it is great.

I need to work out if its worth forking out the extra 200 for one compared to standard unit.

Bearing in mind i only plan to use the car in the dry and its a minimal use car being so stripped etc..

nah i'm talking about the focus.

it'd be worth it if you stripped the heaters out, but i think it would be a bit of a waste if you didn't.

it could easily get cracks in when on track and paying out over 200 quid a time would be rather annoying
