I have a Webasto coolant heater (installed by the previous owner), and it's fantastic, no smoke -25C start ups after 35min running, set it to start up on schedule (it automatically moves to the next schedule once the first run is done, so set it to fire up before work, before lunch, and before home time). Absolute necessity up here IMHO.

When I got my G it had an espar (basically same a webasto) living in the south I rarely used it except when my glow plugs went out and I used the espar to warm up my motor before starting. Worked every time and never needed glow plugs to assist.
