Been using the frostheater on my 01 religiously, but it stays outside .
My wife's Golf resides in the garage , and has been fine with out it as it's been sitting on the bench.


Added the FrostHeater I had on the bench into the Golf today .. Did the ThermoStat and Temp Sensor so I got everything done while the coolant was drained .

Was doing good .. had caught all the coolant .. even when I pulled the oil cooler line for the FrostHeater . Then I pulled the temp sensor and had Niagara Falls off the back of the motor (first time changing one) .. DOH!! good thing I keep a good amount of absorball on hand ..

I'm still amazed the golf has an intact factory belly pan and sides .

Temp gauge is now pegged at 90 degrees and blowing lots more heat .. was reading 60 degrees at operating temp in VCDS.
