Cold + 135i = Not so good!

OK i get it....it doesn't freaking snow in Bavaria!
And apparently the roads are built perfect and are pothole free and due to some gravitational fandangoing RFT are as light and as responsive and as comfortable as normal tires!
OK all that I believe!

But come on!
My car lives in a grage. And so she usually never sees the cold of night.
But well she lived outside in the cold for two days and two nights...and when i turned her on wooooooh!

Cough cough studer shudder cough cough…..grind scream cray….oh I’m on?
I mean what a performance worthy of a premier ship soccer game where a player just out of nowhere takes a tumble grabs his knees and rolls on the ground crying for Tom Cruze’s god to save him….

WOW! Yeah she turned on and yeah I have the new fuel pumps but really? BMW? Really? My 03 Jetta never did this crap? Why are you doing this shit!?

My car isn't thrilled on morning cold starts, but the grumpyness usually works itself out in under 30 seconds, and I don't feel much/any shuddering. Just my experience..

That sounds like a fuel pump on its way out to me.

My car has never taken more than 3 room room rooms of the starter motor to turn on in Syracuse cold and snow.

Then it just booms to life like it always does.

Never any stumble or issues with mine. Starts right up and idles fine each time even in the coldest of winters (-30 Celsius and below).

Did you say "it doesn't freakin snow in Bavaria"?

... just checking to see if I missed blatant sarcasm here or not.

+1 for fellow Ottawa member

It's only been around -17C , this winter so far. However no issues to report here. Like other said, could be a weak battery.

Just starting my 3rd winter with my car, and it was 14F out when I left work a few hours ago, it wasn't happy to start up, but once it warmed up she was golden. Sure, the car is grumpy when it starts in really cold weather. I've even seen the electronics go haywire when its cold out sometimes. All normal.

You would be grumpy too if we left you outside in the cold for 2 days then asked you to suddenly start running around.

It's not uncommon for a car to start a little rough after a couple of very cold days without running. If you think the 135i is bad at starting in the cold, don't buy a Lotus.
