Focus TDCi Heater

Is it typical for a 2003 Focus TDCi 115 to take a long time to warm up this
weather[after sitting outside for 8/10/ hrs]? With an ambient temp of 5-10
deg, ie A coldish day like we're having at the moment, if I use the heater
blower above posn 1, ie 2/3/4 before the temp gauge has reached normal,
after 7/10 miles only luke warm air is produced and the temp gauge actually
goes down. Unless going at motorway speeds [my normal daily run is at
40/60mph] it seems to take at least 10/12 miles to get up to normal and get
warm air from the heater. If I don't use the blower it's up to normal after
about 7/9miles. The local Ford Main Dealer has checked it out but can't
find anything wrong!!!
Comments Appreciated.
Tony.

Alas it is, as Mr Ford discontinued the coolant heater for UK cars in mid
2002. :(
