The 200TDI will usually fire right up in the severe cold.
If it doesn't, we offer heavy duty controllers and new glow plugs that will make a difference and have it starting like it should.
Consider a webasto airtop diesel fired heater that will supply all the heat you need.
If you go with the remote control, you can start the heater before you get inside and then drive around in frigid temperatures in shorts. sandals and a tank top.
