V6 engine temperature

HII all,

Well I've finally got my V6 running at a happy temperature. Put a new genuine thermostat in along with a new genuine temp sensor and the gauge now climbs to a fraction shy of 90 and stays there.

My question is how quickly should running temperature be reached? It's taking about 20mins with average driving in a built up area, don't think there is an air lock but it seems a bit slow to warm up. Is this normal or should I be investigating further?
