Swedish winter in The Netherlands

The winter was very warm this season, until last week: the weather changed immediately from 9-10 degrees Celsius to -10 degrees Celsius. And yesterday it was snowing very hard! The Netherlands is covered with 10cm snow (some places even a bit more) and last night the temperature was about -20 degrees Celsius. Very cold, especially with a strong wind!

My 244 diesel didn’t start well yesterday: it was -12 degrees Celsius at that moment and after the fifth attempt the car kept running (the four attempts weren’t the best: the D24 engine only ran for a few seconds).

When I went to the supermarket I saw a Swedish rival. Seems to me the Swedish cars are designed for these weather conditions.
