Those are pretty good for a 3.0i - nothing to worry about there.

If you are comparing those temps to what I said about rarely seeing 93Deg.C - then note that my X5 is a diesel (3.0d) and runs much cooler - the thermostat is an 88Deg.C unit and on cold mornings it struggles to make even that.

Also normal and nothing to worry about. A lot of folk slam the temp gauge for it's damped readings but remember that all engines can vary in operating temp a bit and most drivers barely even look at a temp gauge (present company excepted!!!). You DO know that most us on Xoutpost aren't really normal, right...?
