Hi,

I've just notice my car temperature gauge hitting somewhere along of 80°C after less than 10 minutes of driving is that normal? or am I being parniod?

Most engines sit at around 85-90°C when being driven normally, and you can get them up to 90-100°C when driving the **** out of them!!

Mine sits at about the same temp, start stop also only comes in once the temp hits 80-85

My A250 Sport always gets that temp. Nothing to worry about.

I have noticed different problem. My engine 220 CDI is reaching working temp to slow. Sometimes after 15 minutes. I drove Audi A4 and Astra GTC in last 2 weeks and they reach temp of 90 degree within 5 minutes.
Low working temperature of engine is affecting MPGs. I am going to check it out with Mercedes. I read somewhere that one guy got it fixed and his cars now averages 10mpg more.
