I've now got an oil gauge, however having never been able to see or monitor the running oil temp I'm totally clueless as to what's deemed as normal, warm and too hot.

Anyone know what approx temps would relate to each of the below?

Normal running, nicely up to temp:
Spirited driving getting warm:
Aggressive driving, time to back off:

I've only ever been used to looking at the position of the needle in previous cars rather than a specific digital reading.

I think it's similar to n54 which is as follows:-
Once oil is above 70 deg C the car will get full boost from turbo;
Normal is 100-125 deg C
Car goes into limp mode if oil temp goes above 140 deg C
