The temp gauge is a little past the half mark, its been doing that since day 1. Even now in the winter time after 20 minutes of driving it reads a little past the half mark. Is my car running hotter then normal? Anyone else have this issue?
I checked my friend's 08 wrx and his temp gauge is dead in the middle and never passes the half mark.

Mine sits about half a needle width past that half way mark. It doesn't matter if it's 110 degrees or 40 degrees has not really moved! Even if I let her sit and idle, before I shut her down, it doesn't move.

Every car is different... I would say if it changes from where it normally sits, that is when you might have a problem.

Same as mine, never leaves the half way mark.. mind you I have had the clutch changed already though..

+1, this is going to sound crazy but if I stare right over the gauge, it is at the middle, if I look from where I sit normally, it looks like it's just past the middle.

Mine has always been just above the halfway point. Like LeftCoast said, I would only worry if it was reading something other than what YOUR car usually is.

I have a oil temperature gauge, and it reads 130 degree CELCIUS on the track (external temp about 40 degrees celcius).. thats a agreed over temp mark but the car's temp gauge reads the same still.
