Yeah I saw that post. Very nicely done.
I may install an air heater, since the unit its self tends to be cheaper and more common.
But I would like to use a hydronic heater if possible.

Yeah i didnt find any chinese knock offs. And a genuine liquid heater would set me back 1000-1200 euro's.

The air heater takes some space, but i can use my trunk for my standard luggage(stroller and what not).

I have now filled my tank (2.5 litres) and reset the time and distance traveled so that i can give a diesel/km/time driven usageage.

Mounting an air heater is super easy, and i can use a remote and timer control to set the heater

How far did the remote control work?

I might get that same air heater you have and add it to my wifes car.
