    Where is the outside temp sensor?

    I had a meeting in London then drove back (2 hours) and parked car in the office car park for a couple of hours when I got in again to go home the outside temp was reading 29.5*c which it wasn't. Is this normal? Anything I can do to insulate it?

    I doubt it, it is located a bit close to the radiator, so you will just need to get used to seeing stupid temperatures for a short distance/time after getting back into the car.

    Edit:- some cars, like the 6K Ibiza had it mounted on the passenger side rear view mirror - but that also comes with disadvantages like extra costs when that mirror gets hit!

    VAG like doing stupid stuff like that with wing mirrors...

    Some models of Caddy van have radio ariel in the mirror housing, same issue if it gets smashed off.
