0 to 1, because it takes me that much time just to pull out of my garage. Keep it under 2000 until I make it out of the neighborhood, then 3500 until both my oil warms up and my redline returns to normal.

Usually less than 30 seconds, a bit more if its cold out. Just enough time to get the oil out of the sump and moving some.

On a cold start, I can never remember driving away without idleing less than 30 seconds.
If its cold outside then I guess a minute.

I usually start it up as soon as I jump in. Then I'll take my phone and wallet out of my pocket, plug my phone in to the charger, put my wallet in the door side pocket, put my sunglasses on (if necessary), activate the power button and put normal on the active bolsters, and put my seatbelt on. Usually by then about 30 seconds or so has gone by, and then I'll just drive away and do my best to keep it under 3K (driving in D2).

Around 10 secs and then just drive it slow till it warms up. If I waited for it to completely warm up my garage would collapse with all the rumbling lol
