Just ordered one of these :D since getting my car back i've noticed its sits at around 70 no matter how long a drive and if i let it idle after driving for a min or 2 will hit 90.. soon as a set off goes back to 70ish i presume these are meant to sit smack bang in the middle like all bmw's?

There guide to fit anywhere? don't have a clue where they even are?
