It's entirely normal for the car's temperature gauge to climb towards the Hot indication. Halfway between Normal and Hot is still quite OK. Just be sure that the electric cooling fan operates normally. I've heard of people replacing the viscous coupled fan on the water pump either with one that runs all the time or with another electric fan, wired in parallel with the original one.
I'd go with a second electric fan.
If you can't get the engine temperature under control, turn the heater control all the way up, turn the fan on full, and open the car windows. I've used this dodge to get me home when my car's cooling system packed it in. That never happened on my Subarus, but it DID happen on my Cooper "S" (the real one).

My thoughts,... remove aircon condenser (air restriction), attach extra electric fan, possiably on front of ratiator, (make sure it pushes the air the right way), and use it to pull in extra air while you are driving slow or whateva
(im kinda hijacking here but...)
my temp gauge never rises above 1/4 scale but engine runs at a normal hot temp
is this a problem in my temp sensor or gauge?
