Has anyone used a heated dipstick to warm engine oil, instead of a block heater that heats the coolant on the Q3.

If so can you recommend a make?

Hi
Thanks for your response, I used this system many years ago on a much older car, and it worked fine. But to the best of my knowledge this won't work on newer vehicles,.
On older vehicle you had to make sure when vehicle was not being used, the heater controls were set to allow the coolant to flow throughout the system, and I don't think that be done on vehicles now.
It's also better if you can warm the engine oil, rather than the coolant.
