So you can start the car from the warm and cozy confines of your house and let your car sit with a cold engine and idle in the driveway? You should realize that this is a very bad habit and will certainly cause your engine longevity to suffer. Buck up and put ion a warmer coat... go out start your car, let it idle for 20 - 30 seconds and then get going, albeit at a slower pace until she warms up.
