It's quite normal. Sometimes I will let it idle and sometimes I don't. Typically, during cooler weather is when it's idled the most, in the Summer, not nearly as often. Other than preference, I don't think it really matters which one you choose to do, per the owner of mechanic shop. I found out if I set the parking brake, hold my foot down firmly on the foot brake, and throw it into gear, nearly all in the same motion, then the car doesn't "jerk" or "lunge" into drive. Bear in mind the car is parked with the front-end facing downwards. However, if I allow it to run and do the same sequence from above, while it's idling at a higher rpm, then the car "lunges" "jerks" into gear. Some days I do, most days I don't. As suggested, engage the remote start prior to entering the vehicle and you won't have to wait for it to idle down.
