I have to admit though that with the selespeed it takes a wee min or too to get into Reverse (I found that by going into 1st, then 2nd (whilst stationary) then trying reverse works!) and is a little jumpy on the throttle until it warms up a bit but after that drives perfectly. Drivers side windscreen washer (but not passenger side) still worked at -12 degrees during today too which is surprising, got about 50% screenwash in there!
Back on subject of the OP, I have also had ABS and VDC failure several times during this really cold snap, especially if I have been sitting in traffic and my foot has been on the brake for a while. Always clears itself no problem though, I guess its just the extreme cold and/or build up of snow/slushy crap round the wheel arches that cause it so I'm not too concerned!
