Yeah except for the "Modern engines warm up more quickly when they're driven. And the sooner they warm up, the sooner they reach maximum efficiency and deliver the best fuel economy and performance. But don't rev the engine high over the first few miles while it's warming up." Im not saying let it idle for 5 minutes, but I believe its important to never thrash anything until the water and oil is at least 150 degrees.

^Don't ask. He's just here to sell stuff, not anything useful to the site.

I'm glad to hear driving to warm up your car is good. That's what I do. After all, if you're idling, you're getting 0 mpg. Also, I'm one of those people that change my oil every 3k miles. Waiting for 7500 would kill me.
