seems excessive since you are already warming the block via the coolant.

Though to be fair I have only lived as far north as Maine, so my opinion is certainly biased

If you have the Webasto, then a wireless remote for it is the simpler way to go. You can do them for as low as $15. The interior should also get heated with the Webasto. If it is not setup, it is just a bit of wiring.

If you want warm, you should see my heater...

Possibly excessive, but I found that even with a warm block, at -40C (aka -40F) the engine still struggles to turn over with the cold oil (even with full synthetic). The other point is that I leave the oil pan heater, battery heater, and cabin heater connected all the time (via a thermostat that turns on at around 0C) - so the Defender should never get fully cold which speeds up the warm up time significantly.

Plus it was project... and I was running short on things to do!
