Mine is normally around 225 in Normal mode. If I run in Sport mode, it drops to around 200.

Normal mode can get to 235
Sport mode hard driving up to that, but can get under 200 casual driving

Mine was getting up to 235 degrees and I thought that was high, considering my Audi RS 7 peaks out at 212 degrees.

Do you have the 3rd radiator installed on the GTS?

Not sure, is that standard on the GTS or is it optional or aftermarket?

I've monitored this...the engine runs a bit hotter I think, with the Power kit...different camshafts, different valve lift, different intake.


In Normal mode on my GTS I see up to ~ 225 deg F.
In Sport mode it runs anywhere from ~ 199 deg F up to about 214 deg F, and that's cruising on the highway.


I also had the rear wing go to an interesting position the other day on the highway- I could just barely see it in the rear view mirror, seemed just a touch lower than 'sunroof closed' position.


I think it may have 3 positions it goes to - with sunroof tilted or open it goes ultra high.
