I normally have had engine block heaters in my cars, but in this I don't. I get bored easily with my cars and swap them about once a year and haven't gotten around to have a heater installed...

Electric pads attached to engine block are not that efficient compared to Webasto diesel heaters, but several hours of heating with electric heater can heat the coolant somewhat. The weird thing about OEM Webasto is, that it doesn't heat the engine, only the cabin.
