I wish I could find $700 cdn NIB

I would not do a timer... Does anyone plan their life that well? A wireless remote makes a lot more sense to me. The one I'm using cost $10. Turn it on 15 minutes before you want to leave.

Make sure to wire it up to turn on the interior heater.

This one: Zrabra 266~433MHz Wireless Remote Control Switch System AK-RK02B-12+AK-D02 - DinoDirect.com

Just goes in parallel or in place of the on switch.

Depends what you do with it, if I were home all day I wouldn't have one. With a regular routine and having it programmed every morning before work is nice, even nicer to have a warm engine and cab when getting to the parking lot at the end of the day.

Unless you wake up and drive away in less than 15 minutes, then I do not see how the wireless remote is not better. I do realize I've only had mine for 15 years and am just learning.
