2012 BMW X3: Rear Defroster Hits a Bull's Eye
March 22, 2012
It wasn't until I fired up the BMW X3's rear defroster this morning that I noticed its unusual shape. Approximately 10 seconds later, the center of the bull's eye was entirely clear, and the heat began to radiate toward the outer edges.
Later, when I sat down to write this post I read John DiPietro's earlier post on the same topic. Most commenters assumed the defroster wires were set in the round design for aethetics only. But after watching it in action this morning, I definitely think it's more than just a big target for bird poop.
