well, they heat the nozzles so that they don't freeze.
you can buy the heated mist nozzles for about £13 delivered (there is a link on here somewhere).

Yes its just the nozzles that heat , so when really cold the water can still freeze in the pipes

Even with my heated ones I find that if its cold, the heated ones arent going to help until the engine bay heats sufficiently to melt the ice.

I was hoping to get some, but will keep an eye out for cheapers!

do you mind sharing that link?

 

I am half tempted to pick myself up a pair at that price (as long as they are heated that is!)
