If I use Sport mode the car would lower its temperature to 90C, but the transmission shifts late in automatic mode or I have to use paddle shifters, they are not something I want during my commute.

I probably shouldn't be concerned about the high oil temperature since the car is designer that way, but is there a way to enable better cooling while shifting the car at a relatively normal rpm?
Nope, but a M2C would let you set the transmission independent of a mode that handles cooling.
