    Did all A3's come with a external temperature display in the dash as mine doesn't seem to work. It's a '97 without the LCD display between the speedo and tacho, just black squares that light up accordingly.

    Cheers.

    My 2000 A3 doesn't have a external temp. display. If I remember correctly it was a £94 option at the time.

    In Germany it came with the FIS (DIS) on Facelift models /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif (Not sure if it was available before)

    Isn't the sensor located in the front spoiler? I think mine is on the LHS right next to the fog light /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I thought it was part of climate control, as it has 11 different sensors all over the car. One sensor on the front spoiler would give you temp including wind chill, which would be all over the place at 80mph. I think it takes an average from different locations.

    Nope for outside temperatures theres normally one sensor.. and normally located where it can't be effected by windchill, engine temperature, ie inside the front bumper. I don't know about the temperature sensors for the interior climate control though, there may well be more than one there.

    When I got my 2000 (faclift) A3, I did not have the external temp reading. However, When I took the car into the Stealer for an Air-Bag recall, I asked them about it as the display is mentioned in the handbook.

    When I picked the car up, hey presto, one external temprature display!! According the Stealer, as long as the car has Climate control, you can get them to 'turn it on'. I guess that anyone with access to VAG .com could do it too, but I've no idea how!!

    Best thing was, I didn't even get charged!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif
