    shikhar,

    I don't think you would need to idle for your daily drive pattern. You will reach office by the time your engine reaches optimum temperature :D
    You ride is fine and enjoy it. Take her to high speeds at least once in a month, Rev and keep her happy.

  2. Exactly @naveen2cool, and more so in winters, when the car does not reach even half way to the optimum temperature by the time I am in parking lot.. and this effects the other performance aspects as well. For example, the ECODRIVE score, which hovers in the range of 73 during the summer months, drops to heart aching 50-60 during winters, with FE dropping from 9 kmpl (which I can fully understand considering the drive pattern) to 7kmpl.

    Just out of curiosity:
    1. I have read in the thread that by design the petrol engine fuel consumption is higher than that of diesel. Is there a difference in the way the petrol and diesel turbos are idled - warmed up / cooled down.
    2. Does this practice has any bearing on the FE of the vehicle?

    oh yes there are lots you've missed.
    1.) Shave and dress well
    2.) Keep a big big smile on your face all the way from your home
    3.) Walk with your head held high into the showroom
    4.) Drive out flaunting your beauty to all those who own other brands.
    5.) Most of all "ENJOY THE DAY" :)

    Some more from the top of my head.

    Key code card.
    Battery warranty card.
    Extended warranty Booklet + I think there is a receipt for it too. Some people got this after 2 months of purchase after continuous followup with the dealer, so don't panic if they say they'll give it to you later.
    Some people speak about some code for the Head Unit too. I don't remember if i got any though.
    Im sure you checked the tool kit per the PDI sheet, so a glance at that before taking delivery to make sure they didn't misplace/remove anything from it.
