You have to remember that in the lower mainland we don't get the cold like other parts of Canada, most of the time in the winter it is between 5 and 10 degrees. For the most part I start mine let it warm for 30 sec and then start to drive slowly out of my subdivision (RPM between 1000-2000) and by the time I am out on a main road my temp gauge is already reading so I go a bit faster but still take it easy until it is warm (about another 30 seconds). This motor warms up very quickly compared to some other diesels that I have had. If the temps are below 0 I let the engine warm up for a bit longer before heading out.
As far as the engine starting nice when it is warm, every diesel that I have owned has started extremely quick when warm.
