    Hi folks, the air temp display on my 05 318Ci SE is showing approx 8 - 10 ºC lower than actual, not the end of the world except i keep getting the Ice warning beep and the display prioritizes the air temp.....any ideas?

    TIA

    probably a knackard temp sensor located under the n/s of the front bumber. Its the pointy bit with 2 wires going into it.
