i do recall the manual discussing this point and mentioning that it's not good for the car to idle. when the engine is warm, it should not simply sit (running) for longer that 30 seconds to 1 minute. i have a 05QP

It means your wallet is too fat because you haven't put enough upgrades on your car.

LOL Steve.
