where's your temps at?

just curious. mine seems to hang around about 40% up from cold. the electric fan works great.

reason for asking - still learning about the car. my trip computer/boost gauge doesn't work - is this also where the autocheck lights are - like if the car overheats?

i've heard that if the thermostatic switch(?) dies, the temp gauge will read normal, but the car will overheat.

my old Taurus SHO was one of the few cars that has a real temp gauge - when the conditions are hot, the temps read hot. not some feel-good constant normal reading - unless of an extreme condition, like overheating.

with my SHO, if the gauge never gets past normal, then you know the thermostat is stuck ;-)

what's the normal behavior of the audi temp gauge?
