    85 degrees outside. Driving 15 miles back from work, normal mode, 40 to 50 mph in 3rd gear like a random suburban dad. By the time I get home it reads 237 oil temp, which looked very high to me given the conditions. I did 235/240 last time I went to the track. Does that kind of temp in sedate urban driving seem normal to you?

    40-50mph is 3rd gear is something like 4500rpms on a 85* day hitting that oil temp seems to be the expected temp. I have hit that on the street with some spirited driving. Check your oil level just to ensure that is not an issue.

    While possibly a bit warm that doesn't seem too alarming to me. Make sure nothing is blocking the oil cooler up front. I was seeing 260+ on track.
