No actually I don't have any heaters just yet. I hade to dismount the coolant heater due to leakage. Naturally it will be replaced. I plan for fuel preheating.

I have 60km one way trip to work so I spend a lot of time in my car, also I live in a little town so I have a 20min (18km) ride just to go shopping. I try to plan to shop on my way home for work but sometimes I'm just to tired so I drive straight home.

I am interested of learning more about transmission heaters.
