Temp Light Came on Then Went Off Should I got to the dealer?

My wife said the temp light went on when she started the car this morning(cold start) then after a mile it went off. It has been running right dab in the middle of the temp range. So bring it in for that or no?

while my boxster was under warranty, I went to the dealer for every noise and anamoly without a second thought. They didn't figure out everything [I had some inconsistent symptoms], it is on record that I was there more than once with the issue.

Thanks. They said that it head green antifreeze instead of red. Sounds kinda of weird.

Do a search on this forum re: antifreeze, It seems there is Porsche antifreeze and there is the rest of the world. Porsche antifreeze is pink [and blue?]. So maybe someone did a flush and didn't use the right stuff. But do a search anyway because the info is valuable as in you can't top off your antifreeze with off the shelf stuff or it will turn into goo.
