You should have between 94-96C (201-205F). It "could" go as high as 98C (208F) in stop-and-go traffic, if it's a hot day and fan clutch or aux fan is going bad.

The car might not be bled properly. Your temp is too high. Hope the engine is still OK. The temps you posted are close to the v8 engines.
well its 25-30 Fahrenheit here and i checked it with a obd. well it sits right a 1/2 were it has always been. any suggestions?
