Impossible to edit my original post, so Im adding this recommendation:
To avoid damage to the dealicate headlight washing system due to seasonal weather transitions and freezing temperatures, owners with headlight washing option should use winter windshield fluid all year round, even during summer. Simply stock up on the liquid during winter.

It's too easy to forget to empty your summer fluid, and replace it with winter fluid. One can easily forget to purge the summer liquid, when suddenly, your car is exposed to freezing weather.
