    That radar seems to just collect snow... IMG_20170129_083127.jpg

    That's why they moved the radar behind the fascia on X and facelift S...

    On a side note: Through testing I've found out that the heater element ("radome heating") in the Bosch fwd radar that you've depicted here, turns on automatically when the temperature drops below 4 or 5°C (39 or 41°F). The radar actually gets pretty hot, you'll be able to feel it with your hand.

    Just a shame the heater only melts like a millimeter of snow/ice. The rest of the build up you'll have to remove manually :(
