When you loose the standard heater tom, does it lose much weight? How heavy are the ceramic heaters?

How much BHP will it "cost" due to extra drain on the alternator?

1 x cheapy ceramic heater:


In car.


Old matrix.


I'm going to try the more expensive option since this heater doesn't blow much air.

Yes, had to unscrew the dash thing. But don't worry, I've got plans for a better dash.

Update: life without the heater matrix is fine. That ceramic heater is a bit puny, but it does clear the screen. I'm going to buy a better one.
