[Biturbos4] timing belt / oil temp

I recently had my timing belt, water pump, tensioners, etc all replaced.
I noticed immediately that the engine oil temp now runs alot hotter than
it did before.  For example in normal highway driving, i'd run an oil
temp of 180-190 if i didn't push it at all.  Now i'm almost always
right around 200-205.  Does that make sense to anyone?

This is a 2000 S4, with over 90k miles (i know, i know, i waited waaay
too long to replace it!)...running Mobil1 0w-40 synth oil...
