Question Should I bypass heater core?

My 190e heater matrix or core as you tend to say over there, is "borked" its not leaking much but its on its way out.

Now I know its a huge job to replace, what with the whole dashboard and heater workings needing to be removed. One cheaper solution that was suggested, if I did'nt mind wearing a coat and gloves for winter, was to simply bypass the core. Sounds easy enough, has anyone ever done that and did thier tootsies get cold?


ps winters tend to be mild and damp here - not too cold.

1990 Euro 190e 2.0l Petrol Now Sold Maybe a w116 280se next
