Suggested Solution

When you are driving on motorway you are getting the air / wind forced into radiator cooling it down.

a cooling system thats running spot on should ideally indicate normal all the time IMHO, you could have a thermostat issue or radiator probs, but if its ok leave it

Changing the thermostat may well sort this, unlike previous post I would suggest you do swap the stat out as your fuel consumption will suffer with a cold engine.

I have been advised there could be 3 problems
Thermostat, Water Pump and Temperature Sender unit failures.I haven't a clue what these are but was quoted 180 for the 3 parts
