Hehe I don't know, but it is VERY hot up here in Newcastle at the moment, & with the leather interior it's scorching !!!! The sensor is inside so it's probably up a little but it's still damn hot....

The sensor is outside, at the front of the bumper just to the passenger side of the intercooler.

I see you had the fan on full as well...

If you tried to turn the fan down and you'll probably have a Japanese voice from the unit screaming out "you crazy man, it really hot, leave air conditioner on. You crazy!"

After driving, stopping, then starting again (after being in full sunlight) I have had my sensor over 50, didn't take a photo though.
