It fluctuates with whatever type of driving you're doing.

Usually (seemingly backwards) runs warmer at highway speeds, but runs cooler if you do a lot of city driving.

In winter, I just shoot for the car to get above 70 degrees C to be considered "at operating temperature" I have tracked my car several times, and the highest I've ever seen within normal range is 111 degrees C. I'd imagine anything much more than that is a sign that something is up.
