My thoughts exactly. I haven't had a petrol car for over 18 years but surely petrol is easier to start than diesel? My E90 LCI 330d would crank and run sweet as a nut at -18c after a few seconds delay for the glow plugs to work their magic. Maybe just the occasional little stutter at idle in those extreme temperatures but nothing it couldn't sort out itself.

Our 1.4 Cee'd LCI also cold starts really well. That is a seriously sweet, fun and torquey little engine. It's a great little (big) car overall and always a fun drive with the lively little engine!

That's going off topic anyway, back to my 328i
