Maybe it will behave differently on a cold winters morning. We'll have to wait and see.
Dont think we will notice here, unless you are in the snowy mountains.
Never needed glow in my 2003 crd.
What I was thinking have they stuffed something up and have pre-glow keeping things just warm.
Or set it up if the key is within say 5m the car thinks we are going for a drive lets preheat (glow plugs) ready for my driver.
Would like to see one start on a cold day and see if there is a delay from pushing the start to engine turnover!
Ordered WK2 Overland, Mineral Grey (was Blackberry) Hopefully. 18th March 2011
