Is this normal??

Hi guys

I have a smart 08 soft top and I have noticed that when sitting in traffic the temperature sits 2 bars from the top (see below).

Is this normal for a smart, I'm old School and think the temp gauge should always sit around half way. My smart sits nearly at the top!

It's never over heated (tempting fate) but I always feel like it's going to!
I even find myself putting the heat on and blowers on full to make myself feel better!!

Where should it sit??

Seems a tad high, have the electric cooling fan checked. Plug in a Scangauge etc to see if the temperature is around 100C - 212F. That's what I suspect it's at.
