159 V6 Oil Temp Gauge

What should the oil temp be in a 159 V6 Q4? My gauge didn't budge today in spite of prolonged mixed motorway and town driving.

I'm taking it back to the dealer on Monday anyway as "brake pads worn out" flashed up on my display. After me picking it up today. And after passing an MOT last week. [Judgment being reserved at the moment].

Cant speak directly about the 159 V6 but all oil temps should run about the same as water temp, normally a bit higher during normal driving and up to about 100-110deg C during hard driving. If the engine is up to temperature then the oil has to be at least 80degC

IMO the oil cooler should have a thermostat to maintain the oil temp above about 75degC

Had this happen on my previous 159. The gauge eventually wouldn't budge, after behaving erratically. Was fixed by replacing the temperature sensor...an engine out job (unbelievably).
