the only upside is the speed the car gets up to operating temp. I usually have a 10 min warm up period but its less than half that in this weather but the downside is it takes a lot of steady off boost pootling before shutting it off.vennuth said:My oil was sitting at 90 today (with oil cooler fitted) whilst driving normally and after a little play I hit 110 (degrees - mph was no way near that ), which is really high for the new car.
The water also got to temperature from 'cold' in under 2 minutes!
