Do modern AMG engines still need warmup?
I've been wondering if the latest AMG models (I own a GLC 43) still need a warmup before we start to hammer the gas pedal? I understand the pistons receive special coatings and they are produced with the highest precision technology, which allows the driver to make no difference in usage between the first second of driving and the fully warmed-up engine. I would appreciate if some engineers had an answer for me. The same question for the (bi-)turbo.. Do the latest turbos allow for limitless (or careless) driving without seriously impacting/damaging them, or there was no development in this in the last decade?
Thank you for your opinions and advice.
