    In this weather most cars run a lot cooler,
    and most cars vary,
    in your case i don't think there is anything wrong, it simply means you have a very efficient cooling system, as my coupe has and that remains cool most times,
    Be glad of yours in the summer

    However in the old days i used to wrap my radiater in tin foil,
    but not recommended nowadays because of the fans,
    But you could try, blocking the front grill with something well secured, to reduce air flow etc, that would certainly raise the running temperature of the car,
    Note i take it that your temp guage doesn't come up to running temperature.

    Just a thaught for you, but basically when the weather becomes a little warmer your car will be ok.

    My Gsi runs about the same on the temp gauge winter and summer. It does vary on road conditions - hill climbing and pushing it along country roads it will climb to the thermostat control point (88?), but otherwise it sits low 80's. I have aircon on all year round, and the heater is as toasty as you want.
