Are you going to pull the trigger on a remote starter, badazz2010focus? If so, let us know how the install goes. :)

-40 Celsius and -40 Fahrenheit are the exact same.

You should let the engine warm up for a little bit before you drive anyway. This is especially important when it's hella cold

I have a manual ... so I can't get one anyway.

I have one on my Jeep. It is nice to click when you're 30 feet away - by the time you get to it, it's ready to go.

I think you should warm up the car for our modern cars for about 10 seconds for the oil pressure to be at operation level. I lived in cold climates and I agree when it is super cold. Less than -20degC, you should allow your car to warm up for about a minute. Usually when you live in an environment like Edmonton, you have a block heater, thus, the car warms up quick.

Well,

I live in Edmonton, and used to live in Winnipeg, and there in the Winter, after having the car plugged in all night, the 10 min drive to work did nothing to warm the car...
