As the car uses a oil-over-water cooler to cool the oil, your oil temp should be running 15 to 20 degrees warmer than the water. This could increase under heavy engine loads, IE on the track or up loooong grades.

YMMV

Nice of him to not return and let us know the outcome after getting advice

I'm running into the same issue right now this week - mine now seems to max out at 175 after 15 min of driving. It's always been at 200+ up before- the weather did cool down a good 15 degrees in the last week but I don't think that's a reason.

Temp is reading back to it's normal 200+ - wouldn't read over 175 for a couple days...strange.

I've got the same issue as described by the thread starter. Did stop today and shut the car down pulled the key then restarted. Oil temp came right back to normal (200~). Leading down the road to just a sensor unit fault. Pressure steady at 3bar and water temp 175.
