    Engine oil temp

    Does anyone know what the engine oil temp should ideally run at on a 2007 S3 . Using the check function on the dis mine fluctuates between 79 and 81 C . I cant find any reference to the ideal temp . This was on a drive at 55 ish for 15 miles , country lanes behind traffic , never reved above 3.5k .Cheers

    That's about right for normal driving, I certainly wouldn't be giving he car any beans until you have reached at least 70 degrees C .

    On track my previous Focus ST-3 & Subaru Impreza would see up to and even a little over 110 degrees C which is considered about the safe limit and time to come off the throttle a bit and coll down for a couple of laps.
