I have the same car as tkamiya, with the same M104 engine, and mine runs at exactly the same temperature in hot, Southern California weather.

In more moderate weather (65 - 80 degrees F), I run 90 to 92 degrees, and may go up to 95-98 degrees in stop and go traffic.

When I went to Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago, it was in the 90s, and I was consistently at 100-102 in stop and go traffic on the strip.
