I live in New York and hate the cold. Yes, this is overkill for New York, but I want it. Normally I would add a remote starter to the car, but in a Saab, this is very hard. I would use a block heater, but this would not work for my wife at work because of public parking. The instructions 12 788 928 shows all of the parts needed just in the case of a car being parted out that had this option.
