2013 335 Oil Pan Heater

I'm in Winnipeg and its quite cold here over winter, currently about -21C, and want to change out my oil pan heater to larger sized one.

Currently im looking at the wolverine model 40.https://wolverineheater.com/pages/wo...z-sizing-chart
The only problem is that the size is 5"x7" and i'm not sure if this will fit on my oil pan.
Does anyone know the proper dimensions of the 335 oilpan and if this would fit?

I'd be inclined to add a coolant heater, which not only keeps the engine warm but also greatly reduces the time it takes for the heat to come up. The temperature here hasn't broken -18C with night time drops to -24C for the last two weeks and my car hasn't had any problem starting, it just takes longer than usual to get heat. I do keep it on a battery tender, though.

Stick a webasto heater on it with a divert to the engine. Can set the timer/turn on from an app off your phone. There are also options to heat the fuel a little.
