I don't see the issue in the summer, presumably because heat isn't required, even first thing in the morning.

You do seem to run your XK on quite a high temperature though. I used to leave my '07 on 19.5 deg C to try and counter the effect and my '10 is usually on 20 or 20.5.
Thanks. That really sounds quite similar as my experience. My post really only refers to the heating system in colder temperatures. In summer there is no issue at all.

Re the temperatures: this probably also depends a lot on personal preferences and what you usually wear. Ie. on weekends in winter I wear maybe a high neck pullover and jeans. Then 23 degrees is the preferred setting I like in the XK. When I drive to the office in a busses shirt, then it will raher be 24 degrees.
I tend to prefer it rather warm then cold in the car cabin in winter.
