Whats it called in VCDS?I think it does?
I disabled it in vcds and it makes a huge difference.
Someone mentioned that's why our cars have a decent alternator is because of the aux heating grid...
Coolant has to be cool, heat maxed, and assuming a certain outdoor temp...
Conditions right i do hear a relay, lights dim, and ecm touches the rpm a bit, probably to help alternator move air over itself.

It could be a dual element. But either way i doubt the mk7s have them guess one of us should look and see...2010 mk5 heater/relay had 100amp I think (100x12 = 1200w) you could also hear the chunky relay cycling at idle. Our '15 Passat has no audible relay clicking.
Also I have no idea why the would split the relay as 2x40A, that is just backwards.
according to the VIN scan, my vcds scan, my 2015 Cdn Golf TDI did not come with the heater.... I am contemplating getting a used one, and installing it for next winter...Has it been confirmed that US/Canada mk7s do not have a aux heater?
