I live in Sweden and have a 530d xDrive MY 2012 with factory installed auxiliary heating. However the heater does not heat the engine, just the cabin. It is a great option though, 30 minutes is enough to get the cabin comfortable with an outside temp of -5 degr. Celsius. Hopefully you will get this option in the UK & Ireland as well. It is expensive (as most of BMW:s options) but very nice to have in a country with 4-5 months of winter weather!
