    What temperature should a CLK 240 run at

    I have had my CLK 240 petrol for just over a week and notice the temperature is around 80-90 which is what I am use to on the E320 CDi but the CLK Owners Manual says figures of 120 to 130 are normal. Is this a mis-print in the owners manual or should the petrol run much hotter?

    C63 oil temperature problem-vented bonnet fix?
