Cold Start

I have mainly lived in the tropics and warmer European climates so have little experience with winter driving and cold starts. With the cold here in Sydney It obviously takes longer to warm up engine (and "acqua-meter" is sluggish to heat up too. What advice is out there for driving in cold, when can I begin to rev up a bit etc....

when it's been on 90 on the aquameter for about 10 minutes, revving should be ok, least that's what i do...

Living in Belgium, it can get quite cold (as in Norway for 147Dude).

I love to drive competitively but I keep calm first thing in the mornings until the needle has reached 90 for a couple of 147Dude said.

Revving the car before then shouldn't cause major prblems, but I just wouldn't take the risk with a 147; any other car, sod it and trash it.
