    Coupe Back Window Heating Element

    Some of the heat strips on my back window have burnt out, was like this when i got it, obviously with the winter rapidly approaching i was wondering if there is a way to fix them so im not scraping everyday. I know you can get the paint to re-do them but has anyone had any experience?

    i had the same problem with my coupe last year and it seems to be a fairly common thing with the coupe. i was lucky to get mine change under warranty. there are kits available and i have tried them in the past, but they look shite and mess up the window
