He said the computers had a hard time dealing with the cold, so strange things were bound to happen. While its not "normal", its not uncommon, hard to replicate enough to require repair, and to just ignore it.
He must be bullshitting you, parked my 135i outside all last winter where temps regularly range from +5 to -35 Celcius and never had any issues other than the slightly longer cranks when it was very cold.
