Cheers flying clutchman that's a relief!
I have let it warm up to normal temp before and driven it for around 40 minutes on the M25 and it was the same!
The temperature gauge don't really reach the halfway mark. No coolant in there at the minute as the previous person didn't bother I guess, its just been topped up with water and a bit light brown/orange looking. The car was running nice and quite a few weeks back but idle seems a tad rough, nothing major but I notice the slightest thing. Haha. But it starts/drives fine.
