2010 Volkswagen GTI: Bun Burners

September 16, 2010

It's no secret that I love seat heaters but...dare I say it, our 2010 Volkswagen GTI's are too hot for me, even through jeans. And that's saying a lot considering I always pick the highest setting on any seat heater. Then when I choose the medium setting in the VW it's not warm enough. I always end up checking the button to make sure it's even activated.

To give you an idea of what I mean, since I don't have Mike Schmidt's nifty gadget (I want one!), if we were talking summer days, the highest setting would feel like a 115-degree day, unbearable. The medium setting feels like a 65-degree day, lukewarm.

Solution? Switch back and forth from high to medium.

But that's just my opinion. Chief Scott Oldham and his wife think the heaters "rock."
