The auxiliary heater with remote control is ideal in winter and for cold days. It allows the interior to be brought to a pleasant temperature without starting the engine.
The auxiliary heater can either be operated with the iDrive Controller or via remote control. The heater's settings are shown in the central Control Display.
A water heating device acts as the heating source, which is supplied with energy by the fuel system. The cold engine is also pre-heated by the device. This further reduces fuel consumption during the warm-up phase. The auxiliary heater is set to switch on when the outdoor temperature gets below 15 °C and may also be directly turned on at any temperature.
