I have no preference whether to warm up or not. As mentioned before I won't have the car long enough to say "damn I should have warmed up"

Most of the time I don't have the time or patience to. I go out start the car sit there for about a minute or so to normalize idle and then drive away

I second all that...but I try to let it warm up when its around 15 degrees or I can have a warm car--heater wise
