F30 Winter Front / Grille Cover

Anyone running a winter front for their diesel F3X? I know tdiwise made a custom one for his 335d, but I have not seen any F3Xd owners talking about this.

I had a winter front kit for my Passat NMS TDI that I purchased from iDparts, and it helped enough to warrant it being on.

This morning the temp was -24*C. I drove 120KM one way to work. During my entire commute the coolant never reached full operating temp, most of the time the coolant was between 62*C to 72*C. The normal temp is 90*C to 92*C. The oil temp hovered in between cold mark and 1/4, never reached the middle.

Your input on a custom or DIY grill cover would be much obliged.
