Should I Let the Car Idle on Cold Start?

Hey everyone,

Is it better to let the car idle a little bit before you start driving it from a cold start? I heard somewhere that for BMW's, you can just start driving it immediately and that it should be fine. I thought that it was weird when I heard that comment.

Normally, with all the other cars I've had, I would wait a little for the idle rev to drop before I start driving to let the car warm up a little.

Does anyone know if what I heard is true?

Thanks!
