Exclamation My temp gauge

I have a BMW x5 2001 3.0l E53. The temperature starts off fine then every once in a while usually when it's cold it will jump up to the red and stay there. If I shut the car off then turn it on again it will be fine ?? Also when I drive highway it is around the blue when I drive in city it is in the middle is that okay ??

Another vote for thermostat. Replace it and bleed the cooling system properly.

I have the same issue and have been searching the forums. I just bought the car (2006 with 60K miles), but travel to cold weather weekly and that is the only time this happens.
Please post if you find solution. I will too when I take it in hopefully the end of next week.
