Engine Temp Rising

Driving my 335Xi 10 fairly hard for about 15 mins and I noticed the engine temp rise to about half way. Under normal driving I have always seen only a quarter reading at all time, and the one time when I when to top speed at about 154mph there was no change in temp. The car has since been upgraded with Cobb stage 1 sport and AFE sealed intake, nothing crazy but is this normal for the mods that are installed. Should I think about investing in a water cooler or upgrade the front mount? I don't normally drive the car aggressively, in fact I keep it pretty tame, but occasional I enjoy taking it on some mt roads and pushing it, I just would like to know if because of this rise in temp should I be upgrading other cooling areas? Thanks in advance.

p.s. No plans on modding it further (i.e exhaust or down pipe), just wanted some additional power without losing lux factor.
