Didn't say that. I said I had heat in 1/2 mile, could have been mostly the electric heater. I usually drive my rotary pump cars (B4 Passat or A4 Jetta Wagon) and don't get heat that quickly in those cars. I was pleased with how quickly it warmed up once on the highway, but I don't drive this car a lot in cold weather so I don't have a basis for comparison.16°F out is -9°C.... at such temperature I doubt your are getting 45°C engine temperature after 1/2 mile (0.8 km)... even with cover for front grill... my car has such setup, plug-in (500 W OEM) for 2 hours before departure every morning and I barely get 45°C engine temp after a 4 kms ride in city but it will get hot (90°C) after another 5 km ride on highway...
No offence, your product is really nice but don't push too far your arguments for selling and justifying a high price tag...
I'd love to have feedback from others who are using the cover to see if they're getting good results. They'll probably have more data than I.
