I always warm up my car, winter or 90* summer days. I also have the infamous cold start piston slap, which is why.

Usually 10 minutes will get the needle to operating temp, but I don't usually wait 10 full minutes. Usually I wait until the needle is halfway between the operating temp and fully cold to drive. Then I drive like a grandma until its fully warmed up.
