i think i need to quit my job and just drive the 1m more. everytime i drive it i love the experience!

does anyone recommend turning the car on and letting it run for a few minutes without driving it? i ask because since i rarely drive it i actually take the insurance off of it so i cannot drive it around. ive read that its best to just let the car sit and not let it idle.
When you store the car for a long period, thought you were supposed to do some kind of preparations (oil change etc).

M cars are like warriors. They are designed to be driven regularly and hard. Mine is a daily driver and no issues.
