Ha! Leave it to GM to offer full instrumentation instead of idiot lights, then configure the gauges to work just like...you guessed it.
Gone, but not forgotten:
Silverstone 2wd TB SS, Vector tune. Now in a much lighter LS2 vehicle.

I apologize in advance if this was already said, but I didn't want to read through 3 pages...Your temp is fine, and as some have said is probably in the 190 range. GM, like most oems know we want gauges, but also know a lot of people would be in the dealer every other week thinking there were issues if their gauges were off a little...so they actually build in a comfort zone and most gauges actually just read in the middle of that zone...IE, your 210 reading is just in the range of normal on the gauge, but in actuality it's no where near correct.

bottom line is not to worry.
