Default Remote Start/Keyless Entry - How far have you gotten it to work?

I've just been blown away with the range of the keyless entry and remote start on this car. I was able to get it to work from about 200 feet away outside of my house, and maybe 150 feet away in a brick building last night. I haven't tried further yet. What's your best?

When I get off of the train at night, I start the car about 50 yards or so away, pretty good to me!

I once got out of class and it worked all the way across the completely empty parking lot.. So, closer to 200+ feet...

But that was probably as good as it is gonna get.

I am in love with the range of the remote start as well. I work on the third floor of an office building and can actually sit at my cubicle (which is close but not next to a window) and start my car! I'm not exactly sure how far the distance is but I would guess it has to be over 200 ft. This is awesome considering it is real cold out right now, the only downside is that my wife will likely try to steal my car due to this feature.
