Frost Heaters are godsends for VW TDi drivers

You heard it here, possibly not first, but if you did, listen up! The Frost Heater is a miraculous thing for northern-dwelling Volkswagen TDi drivers. I got mine installed today, and it’s freaking amazing. Having your engine start like it’s the middle of summer and warm air blowing out in mid-January is a thing to behold. And then, it runs like it’s been on for an hour! It’s so worth it. It increases the lifetime of your whole car, from the starter to the engine to the glow-plugs, and everything in between. And hey — your car makes warm air from the minute you start it up. You can’t get any better than that!

Given the clouds of grey-white smoke that my car was making before the heater was installed, it’s worth the cost of electrical consumption.

Until they make a Frost Heater equivalent that keeps your hands and face warm when you bike in the winter. That would be awesome. But for the price, an engine warmer like the Frost Heater can’t be beat for us petrol-consuming freaks.
