    after the car has been running for 30mins the car still doesn't sit at 90 on the gauge and seems to fluctuate, im assume its a faulty temperature sensor, i know on some of the sensor people advise only using genuine parts is this one of them or do people use pattern ones ok?

    Its only £20-30 from audi, so just buy oem, then you have 2 year warranty & more than likely it will work properly from the get.

    Do you think i could test if it is the thermostat stuck open by letting the car tick over on the drive, i know it would take a while to get to temp but would this work?
