    Hope you all gets it quickly, it can be very cold where you are and this car is not developed with the mindset of ppl living in cold world

    I feel your pain.

    We're on the downhill side of winter for sure. Might see one or two more nights of -20C this week, but after that, hello spring!

    Good news about the block heater!

    There is a video review saying they didn't have one, and a guy from Alberta bought one and there was no block heater option for him. Maybe Mitsubishi was just a bit delayed offering it? Or maybe your dealer just installed aftermarket heaters (they all are, anyway, I think - one company makes most of them).

    Canoehead...
    The block heater is a dealer install for sure.. when I bought the car they scheduled pickup for the next day as they had to install it and wash the car.
    It (block heater) was on the option sheet though and I didn't have to ask for it.
    Will weld for beer.

    I just went outside to investigate my dealer installed block heater hoping to be of help here...
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/kce9bgblef...414_203046.jpg
    Sadly I cannot get a decent pic of the actual installed unit.
    Here's what I did find. The heater is in fact threaded into the engine block to the right of alternator and just under the intake manifold. There is a rad hose leaving the block at this location and the heater may be tapped into the housing?
    I will call my dealer tomorrow and ask for the relevant part#. Will post what I find out.

    I'd also like to know how many watts it is. If they don't know, do you have a kill-a-watt meter you can plug it into?

    Thanks.

    Ok.. as promised.
    The block heater dealer installed on my Mirage is Mitsubishi part# MZ314528.
    This should catalogue as the block heater for the 4cyl lancer motor. This is what fits..
    I plugged it in with my Kill A Watt and it runs at 375 - 380 watts.
    My dealer wants $80.00 Can. For one.
    Will weld for beer.
