TriX5 is on a distinguished road
I just checked mine this morning and it would not go over 69C in suburban stop and go. Temp outside was a few degrees below freezing. (Car has over 80k miles)

Since it had just done a 40 minutes run with few stops on two lane roads I think it should be running above 80C. Tomorrow the wheather should be a few degrees over freezing and will check again but I suspect my T-stat is toast.

Diesels may not warm up fast but they certainly should be able to attain the T-stat stated temperature in moderate weather.
