    Sounds about right should be fine as long as its not taking for ever to warm up when driving on a fast road

    I have the same problem... normally sits below 90 but sometimes hits mid or just above...
    But then today was the warmest day in a while.. 18 degrees and it was nice and low again... very random! But nothing to worry about

    yea i would say its normal, got a 2.2 direct and mine will go to 92 excatly, then drop to 86, then back to 92 etc, on a normal warm day with heaters off.

    Of course, with heaters on and / or freezing cold day it does change its pattern slightly but i guess that would be expected
