Lightbulb Cold Start Video

I did a cold start video this morning. My phone, as I am finding out, does not like to be turned sideways. It likes being in portrait mode. Lesson learned.

Looking good.
Being from Arizona, and after just complaining about how warm it's been.... we drove up to Colorado yesterday.

I did a cold start - no plug in, remote start - of my Limited 9spd this morning.
It was about 7deg F when I did it. It started right up with no issue.

Supposed to be down to 1deg F tonight, with an inch or two of snow.
So I should get a chance to do it again tomorrow morning.

I'll see if I can get a video or pic at least when I do.

Weather changed a little. Got a light snow, but that kept the temp up. It's 10deg in this video.
No problem starting up at all.

Garage
Didn't make a video, but -9F was not an issue the other day. No block heater.

The coldest I've ever tried to start a car was -27F back in college with my '88 5.0 stang and after 2 slow cranks it fired right up. Didn't have seat and steering wheel warmers though.
