      I always have. With all of my vehicles. I was taught to do this by my Dad. It stuck. Damage can occure over time if you just jump in and drive. Any "load" on a cold engine isn't ideal. But if you have to drive "right away", best to short shift and feather the throttle. Keep it really "civil" until you get some warmth in it.

      Just my $.02

      I always let my 1.4 warm up at least a bit before I drive. I find turbo cars especially don't like being driven cold.

      ^^ Exactly. Take what I said above and it applies doubly to a forced induction engine.

      It doesn't take but 2-3 minutes to get at least some warmth in your motor.

      I got in my 1.4 at lunch to move it. It was single digits out. The car hesitated a few times from the cold and not letting it warm up.

      Unless I'm in a rush always when it is around 25 or less degrees. Sometimes you have no choice on really icy days (only happened once this year so far thankfully)
      I don't let it run for too long, but remote start it for about 5 minutes. I always have a short trip so it doesn't really even have time during the drive to warm up fully. Taking that little extra time helps it out a bit. When there is warmer weather I don't see the need to really warm it up often. I will occasionally use it though. When I have a long walk because I park far away always in a parking lot sometimes it is nice to get everything started.

      turbo lag....it's
      foreplay."

      I at least allow the RPMs to drop around the 1000rpm range or below before I drive off.

      Hmm, so why do you need a cold air intake for again? Because of the sound only?
