Independent Ventilation / Heating system

Can anyone tell me about their experiences with this?
This is basically where you set a timer on the iDrive for when you want the car to automatically cool or heat its interior.
The process lasts for 30 minutes and works once per short journey.
I assume the heating process requires the car to switch the engine on.
Not to be confused with the REST button.

I read this in the manual when I first got the car and planned to use the heating function come winter time to warm things up and help defrost windows. I went to give it a test run this morning and the iDrive only has the ventilation function..... which works by the way. Do you think obtaining the heating function is a coding thing or will I need new parts?
