Model of Wolverine heaters for 2007 328xi?

Hi all - I've (more or less) decided to go with a wolverine oil pan heater for my 2007 328xi, soon to be driven in the frozen white north. Any idea which model oil pan heater I would need? I've tried to get underneath but there's not much clearance and the hard plastic cover is blocking my view. Any help?

I'm also considering the battery and transmission heaters - any ideas on which model of those would be best for my car? I'd really like to know about that.

Lastly - I've heard these come without the prongs on the end of them. Any thoughts on how best to wire them, maybe to a single plug?

thanks

I would be in the market for one, or some, of these as well.

What would be the best way to route the cord? I haven't had a chance to look around the vehicle yet because it's been so damn cold here, plus, I only picked it up last week.

The best block heater is likely a heated garage

Cold weather start is fantastic

I recently bought a 2012 X1 and relocated from Toronto, Ontario to Northern Ontario. The coldest weather here has been around -40 before the windchill, so it feels really like -47 to -50. Very cold.

My X1 starts up without any effort. No block heater or oil pan heater needed. Even the lighting on the dash and instumental pannel works fine. I park my car outside and I'm really close to the lake, so it's exposed to wind and lake effect weather.

I cannot believe how strong the car is. All other cars (besides BMW's that I see) have to plug in their cars in order to start in the morning.

Now.... I am not sure if my car starts so easily becuase it's new, if it were say an older 3 series of X3, not sure if it would work the same....




Hope this info share helps.....
