Do I have to warm up my 92' e34?

I was wondering does my 92' e34 need warming up in the morning or can I just start and go?

most modern fuel injected cars they don`t need any warm up. It`s recomended to drive it right away, no higher than 3500-4000 rmp though, untill engine reaches its working temperatures

^^^true - try to keep the rpms low until you reach operating temps.
but if you are hearing some knocking or anything like that, it is a good idea to let it idle for a min or two to let the oil flow better. i always idle the car for at least 30 sec before moving. unless i am the getaway driver. the most you have to lose is a little fuel!

yeah
its the best idea to let it warm up for like 5-10 seconds and then go
dont rev it high, just drive it under easy conditions
that should do the trick

Thanks guys.........I've been trying this technique for a week and Its great......versus the 7min full warm up time. The car is so ready to go after a couple of seconds. I just wanted to make sure I wasnt messing anything up!

Owners manual suggests you spend no more than 30 seconds idling. Just don't go higher than 3000 rpm until it gets to normal operating temperature (the middle mark on the temp gauge).
