Somewhat to the right of the center of the gauge is fine.  There's a dot
on the gauge which marks, roughly, the temperature at which the second
stage fan comes on.

Oil gauge on my car typically settles around the same temp as the coolant.

Sometime, when I think of it, I'll snap some digital pictures of the
gauges and illustrate 'em.  This is a fairly common question among 200q20v
owners(they do tend to run hotter than their 10v counterparts.)
