Anomaly with oil change.

Just had my oil changed , shell Ferrari recommended oil helix 5w40.
Changed filter etc. just noticed that my standard driving temperature has dropped. It used to run at vertical ie about 90 c on the gauge however since the change the temp is now around 70c
Fans come on as usual this is my first change since buying the car 12 months ago, I have only travelled 7000 kl and I was shown proof of previous change.
Any thoughts?

Interesting, wonder why the temp change, car seems to run smoother as well. It may be my imagination though. Is it because it is a better oil than it had before? Nothing else was changed.... Hang on I had an ex pipe installed and the secondary cats removed... At the same time. Maybe it is just breathing better. It definitely sounds better. No noticeable change in performance.. Maybe a smidgen.
