I have checked with Webasto here in the Netherlands and they have quoted me Euro 800 ex VAT to install the pre heat clock. Remote control is not available, according to Webasto it "influences other electrical systems causing numerous failures". Webasto told me they have installed some ten clocks now. Would be interested to get more info on DIY solution for 200 pounds "only".

I don't think they are up to date, it's very new.
It's not a DIY solution, as it's supplied and fitted by Webasto's dealer network according to LRE, and the Â£200 is inclusive.
I'll call my local dealer on Monday to see what he knows about it.Discovery 3 XS Auto, Stornaway, Active rear diff.
We therefore advise all customers to take thier vehicles to a Land Rover Dealer to have the bulletins carried out: Before the Engine Pre Heat is operated.
It is possible of course that some owners have already had these bulletins carried out.
I have asked if he can supply any Webasto part number or reference and will let you know.
The price, if I add the VAT, is higher than quoted in LRE!
I am not sure what is meant by "fit in the front interior light panel"!Discovery 3 XS Auto, Stornaway, Active rear diff.

I posted a diagram of where it goes in this thread;
The brief period that some of us had a working heater makes me of the opinion that the ability to warm the cabin is of far more importance than warming the engine. It was a sad day when we lost this ability.DS3 TDV6 HSE - Silver with Alpaca (old one)

Has anyone compared the diesel used to heat the engine with a pre-heater compared to the average amount of diesel used to heat the engine when driving from cold? I use the car twice a day from cold for short journeys and it kills my MPG! If the benefits are tanible the pre-heater could pay for itself.D4 HSE MY2015

MPG is one side, extended engine life and a warm cabin after start is the other.
The major problem is the battery when using the Websato twice a day without driving a longer distance.

My fuel consumption increased quite a lot during last winter. It seemed like the Webasto was running all the time (it's usually below -5 degrees centigrade where I live), even when the engine had reached normal operating temperature. So if the new kit will make it possible to run the Webasto only when needed, ie before start-up, I will definately save fuel in the long run.
