It's not exactly "remote start" but as a free solution it's good enough!!

Credit to JB for that gem.
I saw this info from JB. I tried it but only the driver door locks. Not the rest of the doors. Is this correct or an issue on my car only?

Are you sure?
Because I've seen few 2,4jtdm 159 alfas on sale, with webasto.

I understand, by looking at the top side of engine bay there's not enough free space, but webasto heater usually should be in the lowest point of engine bay compartment (due to thermodynamics).
