While I was in Florida a week or so ago, I had a new radiator and motor mounts replaced under warranty. Sunday( 10-7 ) was the first day I had to really drive the car. If the car sits for 2 minutes( if that long ) the water temp shoots to 230. It didn't do this before, what would be causing it now?

a bad temp sensor or a bad or sticky thermostat

or an air pocket....it took me FOREVER to bleed the system after I swapped t-stats.....especially since theres no bleeder valve on these cars.

If it only gets hot while sitting still, I would check to make sure they plugged in the electric fans when they reinstalled them. Just a thought.
