This is normal especially in sport plus mode, if I’m heavy traffic I usually drop it to at least sport mode and maybe comfort

So there is difference between gearbox temperatures of the Pre FL and FL model,right?,because the Pre FL the temperature is going maximum 85-90.

I think it’s just because the facelift has a sport plus mode which increases the idle revvs of the car so if you’re sat in traffic at higher revvs then it’s going to get hotter?
