A Convenience That You Are Missing Out On
Owners of prestigious European brand cars such as BMW, Land Rover, Porsche, and Volvos have grown accustomed to having luxurious interiors with amazing technology that makes their driving experience enjoyable. There is one feature that is not standard on many European vehicles, though, and it’s one you don’t even know you are missing out on – a remote starter.
When drivers think about remote starters, they often think about cold weather. Remote starters are a very popular option in colder climates because they allow you to turn on your vehicle (and the heater) before you get into the car to go for a drive. But if you take a moment to think about it and apply the same logic as a local here on the Space Coast, why not be nice and cool when you enter your vehicle?
Comfort Before You Leave Your Home
As most people know, it gets very hot in Florida, especially in the summer months. We’ve all grown accustomed to cool indoor temperatures thanks to our HVAC systems, and we should expect the same performance from our vehicles. Unfortunately, because your vehicle is not continuously running, it takes a moment for your AC to cool down once you start the engine, leaving you hot and sweaty in the meantime. By starting your car remotely a few minutes before you leave you home, you can enjoy a cool climate as soon as you enter your vehicle.
Modern remote starters are great pieces of technology. The units themselves are much smaller than in the past, and the fobs used to start your vehicle remotely are much more sleek and stylish in their design. With many models, they look right at home like an OEM component next to your keys. Their range has also greatly improved, some even connected through the internet, so starting your car from far away, or even though a concrete wall, is no issue at all.

Other Benefits of a Remote Starter
As mentioned, comfort is a huge benefit of using a remote starter. One fact that most people don’t consider, however, is that they can actually help your car perform better and last longer, especially in the case of performance-tuned European vehicles.
Engines have ideal operating temperatures based on the make and model of your vehicle. The term “cold start” refers to starting your vehicle after it has cooled down below its normal operating temperature. Cold weather does impact this, of course, but even in Florida when we first start our vehicles in the morning, it is a cold start. Manufacturers usually recommend for you to keep your vehicle at low RPMs until it reaches its ideal operating temperature.
Owners of European vehicles love the performance that is offered and sometimes choose to drive their vehicle at high RPMs right after a cold start. In time, this can impact performance by causing engine issues. A remote starter can help solve this problem with ease. By remotely starting your vehicle, you’ll be at the proper operating temperature from the moment you step into your luxurious, and cool, vehicle.
