    90 is normal operating temprature if it goes above halfway over towards 100 and above then worry.

    Just as well it reads the temperature of the coolant and not the metal!
    "Is 400'C normal?"

    as long as its between 90 and 100 thats fine above that then you have a problem, highway driving 90 and a little below. inner city for a hour or two on a warm day 95 to 100 max.

    if your a little worried add 1 liter of water only when stone cold, excess water will be escape via expansion tank.

    if your adding water a lot check your car for recall ( expansion tank replacement )

    Cheers

    Only the 2.8t v6 has a recall on expansion tanks.
