If you have the heater cranked it will take even longer to heat up. If you want it to heat faster it needs more load. I f i leave mine idling i turn on the lights and the rear defrost to give it some load and it heats a little faster. My TDI beetle has a harder time heating up than my 87td. Remeber diesels are heat engines and they use there heat very effiecently.
