  • Cold morning start

    Hey guys,
    Just wondering if anyone let's the car warm up from a cold morning start?
    There's nothing mentioned in the manual - only to let the turbo cool down after driving at high speeds.

    I tend to take Robert Peppers advice on the subject:

    ... idling a car before driving doesn’t warm it up. All you’re doing is using fuel and increasing wear while the engine runs cold. Instead, drive the car gently – light acceleration – immediately after starting so you’re applying light load to warm the engine up, but not enough for undue wear.

    From this article:

    If you're somewhere really cold, this article may also be of use:
