Lowest Cold Start Temp?

What is the coldest temperature at which you have started a 335d and how long did the glow plug light stay illuminated? Note: Anything above 10 degrees F (-12C) does not count as cold.

Light on the dashboard?

It looks like the pic below, but centred in the OBC's display area between the tach and speedo.

The coldest I've started mine here in Calgary is -30C. I took a pic of the display as its the coldest it has ever read. I've never seen the glow plug light come on. The engine just starts. Amazing! None of the Trucks I've driven could touch that. The Ford will not even turn over.
