    If you mean the heater that heats up the interior and engine while the car is not running the answer is no. It is an option on the A3 though, albeit an expensive one. It would love to have this on my next car but to be honest our winters (Netherlands) are not harsh enough and not long enough to justify the cost..

    The A3 diesels have an Aux heater fitted, this is electrically driven as the engine under light load will take longer to heat the interior of the car hence the Aux heater.
    This is not an external heater which can be remotely turned on.

    Interesting, didn't realise it was just the diesels which had it. I've noticed the option in the MMI on mine and must say that, when driving to work of a morning, the vents do seem to start producing heat quite quickly compared to my old 8P and certainly well before the engine has warmed up significantly.
