Hello

106° oil temp is quite normal to be honest as under full power exhaust temps can easily reach 700°C and oil temps over 120°C

as long as you have the fully snythetic oil in the engine thats reccommended by VW then this is not an issue

If the car is feeling down on power then thats another matter and you may have a problem with the EGR valve

so check the connections to the EGR valve, if either the vacuum pipe of electrical connection are damaged / corroded then the EGR can be on all time which certainly will hurt performance. Its also possible that its a fault with the EGR valve so its worth removing the valve and cleaning it out with brake cleaner, if it looks particularly clogged then replace it.
