Fellow listers:

I have followed the guidelines of the owner's manual in my 200q (91 20v) as
far as letting the engine idle for a couple of minutes minimum after driving
under boost or after lengthy driving.  Usually, however, around town and
after short trips (absent boost or other hard driving conditions) I don't
follow this practice.  Am I correct that this is the proper protocol to
follow?  Does anyone adhere to a different practice with better results or
for different reasons?

Sorry to waste the bandwidth on what may be a straightforward issue, but I
have wanted to ask this for awhile!
