Help Oil temperature above 210f

Hi i just bought 2012 m3 had 15k miles on it. But i realise there is something wrong with oil temp.

oil temp has been running over 100c / 215f to 105c/221f , in the normal driving but in summer 30c/86f (i live in Indonesia always summer)

The temperature rises and drop quickly. If i drive a bit hard (high rpm) it becomes 106 / 222, if i cruising 2k-3k rpm it becomes from 100/215 to 105/221

Im using castrol tws 10/60 that bmw recommendation

Oil level is green (max)

I guess i like to know if anyone else has or experiencing this issue?

Is this will cause the problems in the future? Can someone tell how to solve the problem?

The gauge is not terribly accurate, and it will fluctuate slightly. I wouldn't worry about it.

105C is nothing to worry about when you stomp it a bit.
With a 2012 with 15k miles on the clock you have a pearl man. Just make sure you keep that oil fresh (i.e. change at least twice as often as BMWs rec) and warm up the engine carefully and I'm sure the car will treat you the same in return.
