I know the TFSi takes a little while longer than your average engine to warm up... something to do with the direct injection I think..
But I've noticed mine is only getting close to 90 after a 40 min drive on A roads (my daily commute).
In fact, the needle never gets quite to 90 and always sits where it is on the pic below ..
I went a little further and fired up Torque, created a dial for coolant temp and strangely it only thinks the engine is at 77!
So then I popped the bonnet and felt to see if the main water pipe to the rad was hot.. it was. So thermostat is open.
Do I need a new one?
Is there two thermostats on the TFSI?
