-26c / -15f this morning. Was impressed. No starting issues, no grunts or groans while driving. And the nice cold air gives the car a little more punch too. I had the front lower control arms changed a couple months ago, so I was curious if I’d have any noise when it got colder. All good.

It was -3F here at my house in MI this morning and I had no problems, YAY. The exhaust was noticeably louder in the car though. Almost as if the noise cancelling wasn't operating for several minutes.

That is good to know. I just had my lower control arms replaced, they haven't made a sound since but I do have an awful vibration now from 60-80 mph. Oddly enough the vibration was better today on the coldest day so far here (17f).
One of your tires may have issues. I had one replaced with low miles and was also feeling a vibration soon after the control arm replacement. Either a belt was going or the sound deadening material in the tire was causing it.

Thank you! I called the dealer and they are waiting for a loaner to get back in so I can drop off my car. I too think it's a tire, fingers crossed.

I bought mine right before the incredible cold snap we had a year ago. My wife drove it, and when i went to drive it the really cold day, it was so lioud I thought she had ripped the muffler off. It got better in a few minutes.
