My car spec states it has this can anyone tell me if this will warm the car before the engine is engaged and if so do you use the audi ap to initiate it?

If you have a diesel in the UK, and I assume the West Midlands in still in the UK, it will have a PDC heater within the cooling system to aid quicker warm up's of the engine in winter, as diesels run colder then petrol engines. this will only run when the engine is running. In the UK there is no other auxiliary heater and if you had the key fob would have a timer in it so you can automatically have it running before you start the car.

Thanks for the response, I think I understand that it’s to enable the engine to warmup quicker in colder weather which will eventually enable the cabin to warm up quicker as a result. Cheers
