Question my new car is too cold :(

my 335d is built and ready for me, but i'm not picking it up until march cuz i wanted an 07 plate and also its better for me financially...

my question is the effect of my car sitting in the dealership carpark in these freezing conditions for a month without being driven... surely this cant be good for a car no?

just a bit worried about her, she's only a baby

No it will be fine, when a car has been standing about for about 6 months or more, then you should be worried.

Its a BMW not an Austin Allegro!! I'm sure you won't need to pull out the choke when you first start her up!!

Oh my god, that brings back memories (the manual choke not the Austin Allegro)!!!

You tend forget all the little "features" which have been designed out.

I can honestly say, I've never driven a car with a manual choke Can they not be awkward to start in winter if you choke it too much?
