Cold weather guard???

I do t know if you can get these, but a friend with a citroen c4 has a cold weather / snow guard for the front grill. This helps the engine warm up and keeps snow off the radiator. I think it blocks off about half of the radiator in all.

Now coming home from work, 9*c outside(coldest iv driven in so far) and by the time I got home, 7 miles I. Duelcarageway and small amount of town roads, my temp was only at 70*c. With the weather just getting colder and colder, I'd like my engine to warm up, without really booting it up the road with a still cold engine.

Now I'm not holding my breath on being able to get one cos of the shape of the front grill, but, is there anything out there to reduce the airflow over the radiator?!?!

I don't want a piece of cardboard either! Haha

This would be very interesting to me too. I drive to work only about 4km so my engine too does not have the time to warm up properly.
