I also make a note to cool the car back down when I know I'll be shutting it off soon. Usually revert back to list item #2 for the warm up procedure for the last 2 minutes or so of driving so the car shuts down at just under the 205 degree middle dot.

Car is also always in sport plus drivetrain for the enhanced cooling. I haven't experimented with keeping it in 'Efficient' during the warm up process to see if it warms it up any quicker or not, but I may give it a shot and report back
Definitely agreed on this list. Do the same on mine aside for #2 the RPMs are usually between 2.5-3k.

I do have a question surrounding the last pt on "Sport + means enhanced cooling". How exactly is that possible? I have heard this before but never had any additional context.
