Agree, nice install deezler.

Also some good info from bwilson. I have found the same thing with my Matrix. I had it warming up for 2 hours (300W heater). During the coldtest part of winter I put the timer on for an extra hour. This rose coolant temps at start up from 70F to maybe 90F (around 0F ambient) on a good day. Is it worth the extra hour and 300 Wh of electricity? Thats up to you.
