Nice man.

The bottom line here is... the auxiliary heater isn't going to change your life, but it does help take the edge off. Like others have suggested, I run the blower on setting 2, and it's already de-fogging (not de-icing) the front windshield by the time I'm out of my neighborhood. Compared to my AHU Mk3, I have good heat at least twice as fast. I have heat probably 30-40% faster than compared to my ALH Mk4.

I wish the function of the electric heater was more predictable... it does seem like VW doesn't even want you to know it exists.

While it doesn’t seem like the auxiliary heater does very much, you’ll certainly notice if it ever stops working.

Confusing.. One unchecked and the other checked, it works and no codes. What do u believe?? Haha.

I know it's. Not a parking heater! That's yet a different option in another module.
