    yes

    my 88 535i will start fine down to about -30 with out the block heater - it makes a nice loud groaning noise, but it always fires up.
    With a block heater helps, but it has to be plugged in for hours beforehand I find to make a big difference (like all night...).

    I have no problem starting mine...

    No problems,ever, near Montreal.

    No block heater and car is parked on the road. I do use regular gas from Dec to March.
