Heck, I plug in when the temps are even +30*F when its someone elses dime and I will leave it plugged in all night...like at a hotel.

When its my own dime I plug in when its +20*F sometimes, depends on if its windy since that wind will be pulling heat away.

I have read 80% of engine wear occurs during initial cold start, that may be an exaggeration but even if its 50% then its still worth it to me to plug in a couple hours.
