Does having a wind screen make it more bearable to drive out in the cold?
The wind screen only has an effect over about 80km/h (50mph), but the best thing is setting the air distribution in a specific way. Maximum fan and 50% to the footwell / 50% to the mid vents (left dial set to the 6 o'clock position), with the vents either side of the steering wheel pointing to your hands. Close the mid vents on the passenger side if you don't have a passenger.
