Average running temp (in Celsius) and warm up time

Hi. I'm worried that my SLK200 (2002) is running warm/hot. It also warms up incredibly quickly, not complaining about that, I drive a very short distance to work so it's welcome. It's temp is probably around 90-95 degrees C, if the temp gauge is too be trusted.

What are your averages? When I say quickly, it's normally around 3-5min

Thanks.

Sounds about the right temperature - wish my diesel warmed up that quickly

Mine is mid to upper 80's. Warms up in about two miles, fully up to temp in four miles or so.

I run just above horizontal on the temp gauge and it takes at this time of the year about 1 - 1.5 Miles to get fully warm

Regards.
