    Still stand by the hot/cold flaps being at fault.... I take it it goes to 90 only when left sitting idling? Yes you may have a faulty thermostat but that would not affect the air in the cabin to that extent....

    I may be wrong... but if all other ideas have been exhausted then worth a swap over? I've got one to change on mine due to too slow to heat up to correct temp. but my heater blowers (normal aircon) are nice and hot though

    Yep replace stat, I had same problem. Take ages to get up to temp then when I turn on heaters the temp would drop. Replaced stat and cabin is loads warmer, and a noticeable difference in mpg!
