    Only let it run long enough for me to get situated in my seat and seat belt on. Just around 30 seconds. By that time the rpms come down

    I should add, that this is more about getting the fluid in the transmission moving and slightly warmed than the fluids in the engine.

    I have the $495 Remote Start option, so I might as well get my money's worth. I don't like how the car turns off before I get in, but I can live with it. Like others here, I like to wait until the tach drops its idle below 1000 before I take off slow and go easy until it reaches optimal operating temps.

    FYI for all the stinger owners out there. You should always let a turbo car warm up because the oil in your engine is cold an thick, so your engine has to pump it through a oil feed line to the turbo and if you have a heavy foot the oil has a hard time getting their. A good analogy would be try sucking a cold milkshake through a straw then try sucking it when its warm big difference. You want to keep the bearings lubricated in the turbo at all times or BOOM there goes your turbo fins through your motor. If you live in a cold climate you definitely have to let your car warm up. It won't happen right away it will over a period of time but here in Phoenix area we don't have to worry about that to much. In the winter here I still let my car warm up, in the summer you really don't have too. Just want to let people know who never own a turbo car before.

    Very true, I normally go easy on the car until the engine warms up.
