    How many people get in their car early in the morning and drive right away? I'll admit I have a habit of letting it warm up for a couple of minutes before driving.

    I always wait until the tacho drops to around 1000 rpm, but that's it. Never gets that cold here

    I normally let it idle for a few minutes while I start my music list.

    Just long enough to back out of the driveway. Then low and slow until coolant reaches normal, then another couple of minutes until everything else reaches normal operating temperature. I try to avoid pulling out of a motel parking lot and running up a steep entrance ramp onto a 75 mph interstate on a cold engine and drivetrain. Not good.....

    I tend to have a heavy foot which is not so great on cold engines, so I let it come up to temperature before I drive off.
