Windscreens
#1
Quick question, have Berlingo's or Partner's ever come with heated windscreens?

No, thats a long term patented function by Ford and no one has this on any brand except them.

I know, I'd kill for a heated windscreen after having it on the ST and my previous RS, it's so good.

No, but depending on model you have, it could already have the auxiliary heater which works very well at de-icing the screen quickly (I use it frequently).

It seems not many people know it is fitted, but here’s a really good discussion on general information and also how to activate it etc.

Ok there might be a few cars now but not the Berlingo. Always there to catch me when I fall. 

I'll check next time I'm jumping into my G-Class Merc or my Porsche, must have missed that function  Big Grin

Ford did have an exclusive patent on that technology but it expired around 2005.

Yeah, I see now a few makes and models have used it since the expiry of the patent, it was exclusive to Ford for a long time. Every car should have it!
