Yeah, that's normal. It's weird the engine got up to temp in just 3 miles though.

It won't get up to 90 in 3 miles mate. Especially in the current cold climate

It's probably DPF related, not a overheating issue.

No, the DPF is doing a re-gen, its normal. Mine does it from time to time. Radiator stays on for about 5mins after a run even though the car is turned off and locked.

Give it a good run and it'll all settle down
