The Auxiliary heating with timer function enables the passenger compartment to be individually heated in cold temperatures while the engine is turned off. It also prevents windows from freezing and fogging.
The Auxiliary heating can be adjusted or turned on with the separate remote control, the BMW Connected App or the iDrive Controller. A water heating device acts as the heating source. It is supplied with energy by the fuel system. The cold engine is also preheated by the device. This further reduces fuel consumption during the warm-up phase. The Auxiliary heating can be activated automatically at a pre-selected time when there is an outside temperature of below 15°C or manually turned on at any temperature. At warmer temperatures, ventilation ensures a comfortably cool interior.
