Depends. Flash point is determined by how much fuel is diluted in. Oil temp is about 20 degrees warmer than coolant temp. If you are seeing oil temps over 300 all the time then there is a problem.

What temperature are you running?

220 is the highest I've seen.

I will upgrade to Stage 3, so it was more if I also have to think about the oil cooler

My coolant is usually 200 F and my oil runs about 235-240F

OP was asking about the R. GTIs have higher running oil temps than Rs in similar conditions.

Typically an R would see between 194-212F depending on how /where its driven and what type of oil it has, with an occasional 220+ if you're tracking or thrashing it reaaally hard. Since I switched to Motul 300V 5W30, I noticed a fair drop in temp and rarely go above 200F
