I think the most important thing (and everyone agrees on this) is to take it real easy and keep the revs low until everything gets up to operating temp.
I would also like to know why are you warming up the car,
and if it is better for engine (by decreasing wear and tear)
I don't warm up the car.
if you don't warm up your car,
I would also like to know why you don't warm up your car.
and why it is better not to warm up the car.
Think that goes for (diesel or) old time cars. I think if you have a automatic, let it warm up so it doesn't slam into gear when you put it in drive (I hate when (always girls) people do that...)
Like it was posted, take it easy.
