Have you tried it both ways? I am wondering how much difference between using them and not.
Thanks

Nice film clip! The heated seats are nice....brrrrr here in Jersey too......and the factory tires have lost grip on the road surface....doing 45's though corners now, have to let up. Car is running loose and wild with cooler temp's and more miles on it. Beside the weather, it seems to me over time there is something within the algorithims that opens up the motor performance over time. DR's would be a requirement for cooler weather operation even on the street. No traction at all now.
