The original Honda accessory floor mats have quite small coverage on floor. Lots of gravel, sand, mud and snow gets to he floor. Especially on driver's dead pedal and rear hump. After lots of research of different all-season mats I ended up ordering 3D MAXpider classic floor liners from US. It took three months to arrive on sea fresight and I got them on floor yesterday.

First impression is good. They fit nicely on floor contour and cover very well e.g. driver's dead pedal and rear floor completely reaching under the seat. I wanted to find mats, that takes the mud also when the magic sear rear seat bases are lifted up. Durability and cleanability remains to be seen.

I will remove the "3D" deacal from front mats. Just need to get the rivets drilled off and put new rivets to plug the holes.

I'd noticed how little of the floor the original mats cover. The mats you have look the business!  ;)

Temperature has been below zero for many nights and it has been snowing, so it was time to get the winter tyres in use. Like most cars, Jazz conveniently lifts both wheels on one side, when jacking from front lifting point. And that's how the winter wheels look.

I got her washed for a while. Also it was a nice weather to take a picture.
After looking the winter wheels for some time now, I have to admit they are not looking as good as I wished. But that's what I've got for now.

What do you do to stop door rubbers and locks freezing after washing the car in such low temperatures?
I dry the rubbers, but it is never 100% effective if there is a hard frost.
I just realised. With remote locking, you won't have to worry about the locks freezing. I have to open my doors with the key.

This time I just dried the rubbers and their counter surfaces and kept the doors open for a quarter or so when cleaning and drying all the door seals, sills and pillars. The automatic car wash is in an indoor car park so it is plus degrees there. With this new car the seal surfaces still have some oily feeling preventing freezing. In older cars I use some silicone wipe or my dad's method, wipe some glycol coolant to the seals. Locks are fine if you treat them with thin lock oil or gun oil before winter. I usually inject so much oil that it comes out and flushes some dirt out of the lock. Then clean the excess oil and you'll be fine for next winter or two.

If the lock freezes anyway, easiest way to get it working it is to heat the key with a lighter and stick it rapidly into the lock before it cools, this needs to be repeated couple of times. In past there used to be battery operated lock melting devices, that had an electrically heated thin stick, that could be sticked into any lock. But I haven't seen those in this millennium anymore.

Still available. I had one once, but the first time I came to use it, the battery was flat! It had been lying since the previous winter.

I've known it for long time, but now I noticed it again. Compared to hand wash by professionals, automatic car wash takes much more time when you need to clean the door sills and pillars yourself after the wash. And the cost is about the same. It's just this COVID situation, when I'm working from home it'd take 30 minutes just to drive to hand wash. Automatic car wash is only 5 minutes from my home. When we get back to normal office work, a hand wash is only 10 minutes from work.

Bit frosty this morning. Dashboard shows one or two degrees higher temperature than house thermometers because the car was pre-heated. Does anybody know where the Jazz's outside temperature sensor is actually located?

Cool photo!  8) Like that a lot.

-27c ! Anything below freezing and I consider it too cold these days.  ;D
