I haven't seen a Webasto system in the flesh,so can't visualise where it could fit,but,there are spaces in the arches . . . might be a nice little project for next year!
With the 'hegehog' I can defrost the car by starting it and leaving it running for a few minutes,not something I make a habit of,but sometimes needs must!Before the 'hedgehog,I could leave it running for ages and the screen barely cleared!
The engine warm up is a little quicker,mainly because the heater isn't cooling the coolant before it even gets warm . . . . If I don't use the heater,warm up is quite a bit faster . . .
Hi Dave is yours the facelift interior model?my mate has one and that has a bit of extra loom to use only part of the auxiliary heater,to reduce the current used.
My thermostat is fine,runs at about 88℃,on fes.The problem is that on cold mornings,with the heater on a reasonable setting,the car(engine or heater!) doesnt warm up unless you give it some beans!
I would disconnect the 'hedgehog' if the stat goes,as it would be on for too long and give the battery and alternator a hard time
