I know that feeling with cars.
This 316 1.8i has been so reliable, i dont have any hesitation for driving. It is nice to start in the morning, i use 230 VAC preheaters in engine + interior.
Nice warm start. Coolant is approx +30celsius and cabin +40celsius.
My car has DEFA pre-heating kit installed. Total power is 2300W including engine block heater + interior heater.
