Even though i live in southern BC this doesn't totally make winter driving the warmest experience. I personally prefer to plug in my car overnight and give it plenty of time to warm up

Considering the time of year, and the fact there should be lots of recyclable coroplast throughout the country (aka election signs ), I thought i'd bump this thread to the top.
I'm still on my original set from 5 years ago, and it really does take only a few minutes to put in and take out.
Just a few notes on my original post. The video I linked for the front grill removal shows them completely removing the grill. It is not necessary to unclip the hood release pull; simply pivot the loose grill upwards and there is lots of space to install the coroplast sheets (as in my 3rd picture).
I know a few people have questioned how effective the coroplast is versus the pipe insulation method, and since I've never tried the latter, I can't really say.
But for the ease of installation, and the fact that it doesn't change how the front end looks, and it's reusable for many years, it's what I've been doing.

Just a thought on my part. If I were to do something like that, which I have no need for. I would opt for the pipe insulation, snap on/snap off and if you're concerned about how it looks, use aluminum paint and paint the insulation silver!


No need to undo anything on the hood release or turn the grill.

If anyone has difficulty getting the coroplast, I use a sheet of cork under padding, cut to the desired size. It sits nicely in the rad from below, is cheap, doesn't disintegrate, and hasn't burned. I've run a little over 100,000km with this particular mod on 3 different ALHs.
