Evo X - dashboard outside temperature reading

What's the highest and/or lowest stable temperature you driven your Evo?

My Mazda 2 shocks used to make awful squeaky sounds around 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm in the northeast, highest was probably 104 (no issues). Lowest was probably 11 (no issues aside from slower start and lcd displays lagged)

My low is -18F.... it doesn't like to be driven until it warms so I always wait otherwise no real issues in the cold. I've been through two winters so far daily driven.

At -8F I noticed that while waiting for the car to warm up, the sound system sounded like crap. No BASS at all.. It's because the surround material in the speaker was too frozen too move and so you only get the high notes... LOL

I've driven a scion ia (Mazda 2) in -15 and it seemed to be about the same but everything is going to be stiffer in that cold of weather.

Not done anything extreme in a Evolution though.

-54 F with a wind chill of -111 F, other than taking forever to warm up it drove fine.

Do you live on/around the North/South pole?

Your full of ****. You aren't driving an Evo in that sort of cold. There is no way its -111F with windchill. I live in Yellowknife(grab a map to find it) and the coldest I have seen with wind chill is -57cel.

I don't know what the temp was at the base of the mountain as my car's display didn't work, but I was there for skiing and on the mountain it was -114F wind chill (excuse the small error). Check out the below linked article.

'Upstate New York mountain reaches minus 114 wind chill at its summit'

Didn't know you could drive at the summit of a mountain.

Stop being a jack ***, though I know that is impossible for you. My first sentence said that I didn't know the temp at the base. I wasn't trying to beat you in the competition for who lives in the most horrible place (congrats on that btw).
