Ok.. There is Oil Temp Guage under your Rev asumming this is what your refering too...If so? then yes it will or should stay around the 90 mark..sometimes it may creep to near the 100 or centre if the cars under load or pushed hard..but as long as that needle sits between the 70 and 100/centre mark..then it will be fine... But yes you dont have Dipstick on these cars,as it done by checking the oil level counters diagnostically or by putting in the correct amount and adjust accordingly when serviced..Level is monitored via a electronic level sensor on the sump..this sends info the ecm which in turn you should be able to look up the Oil status on the information centre amoungst other things..your owners handbook should tell you how to go about that so worth looking at that....if its had a recent service done which should be all stated on the service book or any recipts that came with the car..if its not had oil/filter service for quite sometime ie: beyond 10,000miles from the last one..then it maybe worth at least considering it...hope this helps
