-33 with windchill decided to start up the masi

So I've been having a hard time keeping the masi garaged for the winter. I actually enjoy taking the garbage out as I pass through the garage and get a view of it en route. Tonight, an especially freezing cold night in Calgary I decided to start er up just to bring the engine to operating temperature. To my delight she purred right up first crank with no codes!!! Unfortunately I was unable to drive it as there is 2 feet of snow piled
Up on the driveway I haven't bothered shovelling lol
Anyway, likely that 200 dollar maserati ctek the dealer convinced me to buy when I bought the car turned out to be a great investment.
3 more months til spring :(

I too started my 07 Q during those -31degree days , but I guess I would as I drive it year round , it's the only car I own with snow tires on it !.
Good icy roads sharpen the reflexes but do not ever turn the MSP off .

Garage
Drive my '07 daily. Sits in the garage at night but outside all day and here in Ohio we've had temps in the single digits Fahrenheit. No problems at all, Nokian Hakkapeliittas at all corners and 103K miles on the clock.
