As I understand it there are two types of stat. The "performance" one is 87degrees - guess it switches the fan on earlier hence keeping the enginee cooler etc.

theres two ratings 87 degrees and 90 degrees its nothing to do with performance or switching the fan on its simply the 90 degree one is specified for cold climates to assist warm up time (by the time the fan cuts in both stats are well and truly open anyway) use the 87 in the uk
