If that's the point, you could also put a stationary heating system into the car. If desired it can be fitted with a timer and/or remote control. This system runs on the fuel you car uses. For some cars also something called a latent heat accumulator (basically a thermically insulated bottle that stores heat from your cooling system) is available. As soon as you start your engine the stored heat is transferred into your cooling system. I don't know if this exists for the 9-3. -- Mager
