Agree, 1.5C is not cold.

Personally I imagine it is a little glitch, if it happens every 'colder' start, I'd see something as being wrong.

My N55 engine is no different at around freezing than any other temperature. Had a few starts below freezing and no issues, same rpm run down after a few seconds.

Yeah +1c is mild as it goes!

Started up again this morning, +3c. Like yesterday, it cranked into life beautifully and worked its way down from 1200rpm to usual idle. Just as it came to 900rpm there was an ever so slight disturbance in RPM, something or nothing, just the merest shake for a fraction of a second and then it continued as normal in it's cold start process.

Will update tomorrow morning, although I think it may be warmer tomorrow morning (+4/5c).
