    I seem to remember my 2.0T always being spot on 90 degrees last winter but this year it seems to hover a little below or even above the 90 degree mark? Is this normal?

    I had the water pump changed with the cambelt at 60k so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks all :)

    Forgot to mention, it takes a good 5-10 minutes to get upto temp aswell which seems like a long time.

    5-10 minutes is about the norm, I seem to remember another member having a similar problem again around the time of a cam/water pump change, turned out to be a thermostat problem

    Just a quick bump to this thread. How much work is a thermostat change on the 2.0T? Wondering if it's a DIY job.
