reading some other posts on here i realise my water and oil temp temps are very low.
on a decent drive my oil gets up to 70 but never higher, even on a long drive. the water temp hardly moves if at all from the bottom/60 mark, unless i stop in traffic or leave it ticking over in which case the temp starts rising, but when i start driving it starts dropping again, back to the 60 mark within 5 mins. it's never got to the 90 mark everyone on here seems to get!
checked the water temp sender output on a vag-com and it seems to be the same as the reading on the gauge.
wondered if was linked to my other problem:
