Smile Best Regards to All Jeepers in US

Hello All on this nice site!
I am living in Kiev, Ukraine. Just sold my BMW-740(2000) and Montero(1996) add $15K and bought Grand Cherokee 2008 3.0 CRD with 32000Km. on odometer. Quite expensive here. So far I really like it. I did have a many different cars before, but itís my first Jeep, and not only Ė itís my first Diesel engine. Hmmm, it is interrrrresting. Not sure how much I plan to modify it, first of all Ė Provent (or similar) air/oil filter to CCV at least.
First impressions: differentials doesnít have the drain holes (no magnets?) and refilling nozzle Ė futile rubber cork Ė oops. What the nice, easy and pleasant dirty procedure must be to change oil! Any good reasons about for $45K SUV?
Main question: is it normal diesel engine temperature on winter (-5*C,[23F] outside here only ) itís seems to me like under heating due to bad thermostat or some other reasons. When I start the engine, itís will take about 20min.to get ľ of the left way on temp gauge and then increasing a little more then 3/8 of the left way on temp gauge, never get the half way. Cabin temp after 30min. drive looks more or less OK. Is it normal for diesel?
Any comments are much appreciated.
Best regards,
Victor,
Kiev
