I ran across this on skymall catalog a couple months back and wanted to know if anyone has ever tried these. It's a cover that goes over your windshield to protect against frost and snow and is held down by sewn in magnets. Doesn't seem too bad idea for $15.

I'm usually in more of a rush to get on the road in the morning, would just save time if I didn't have to scrape off ice. Snow isn't as bad. Maybe one of those "too good to be true" scenarios though.

People have often done basically the same thing with plastic sheeting or an old shower curtain. It's often as much trouble as scraping.

before I had my garage, I used a piece of cardboard or a piece of poly. Seems like a good idea, but a roll of the dice for ur paint. my .02

My neighbor always used a BIG beach towel and shut it in the driver/passenger doors and tucked them under the windshield whippers. Although I don't think they were the open toped design like on the s197...

That's $15 you could spend on taco bell or beer though. ........

the reviewers for it http://www.skymall.com/shopping/deta...407&c=#reviews seem happy with it. its a little less tacky than cardboard or a shower curtain. Prestone Windshield De-Icer works pretty good. http://autorepair.about.com/od/tools/a/prestone_ice.htm
