    normal range is actually 80 - 105, however during this range the gauge will sit at 90 (to stop people worrying and calling audi lol)

    if your gauge says 70, the temp sensor most likely works (when they don't they sit at 60), if you have a blast on the motorway and pull over, let it idle for a while, does the temp raise a little more ? if so it is almost certainly the thermostat
