minie seems to be accurate... i have an analog thermometer that i usually bring and check the outside temp and it's the same... and also the same on my dad's in-car temp gauge and also my friend's car...
I think it's pretty accurate actually. If I remember right it is tucked out of the way behind the bumper so heat from the engine doesn't affect it. Certainly when I have checked it it was within 1.5 deg C.
I find the gauge incredibly immune to engine heat (or any false readings for that matter) yet brilliantly sensitive to ambient temp changes.
I've just come back from a 2000 mile for the hell of it mid-winter thrash where it was occasionally -5c at midday and the speed that the gauge would detect lower temps in shady, icy valleys (+4c to -3c in seconds) was uncanny.
It was a guardian angel, although a 'bong' each time it slipped below 3c would be helpful, I hope it won't deteriorate over time.
it seems pretty accurate once the car is moving - i find that mine reads about 10 degrees hotter when i first get in my car after it has been outside all day at work in the texas heat...then again my car is black and likes to absorb heat pretty well so i'm sure the ambient temp around the sensor is really that high....the other day when i left work it said 110F at first..but within 2 miles had dropped 98F.
Just had a craven speed helix short throw shifter installed. Very happy with it, however it took 4.5 hrs to install, not the 1 hr advertised on the site. Driver's seat and entire center console needed to be removed and a bit of carpet had to be cut.
Hi guys, new to the forum and joined because I'm on the verge of becoming an owner! Was looking into remaps for a 2012 n18 Cooper S. I'm attaching the power figures that the remap will apparently give. They seem exactly the same as the Avon remap, maybe they are a dealer for it.
Hey guys, I just recently bought a 2014 Countryman S, it has everything an S is supposed to have (dual exhaust, the big S on the stick, hand gear shifts etc) but it doesnt have the sport button where its supposed to be. Its just plain and there's no sports mode anywhere to be seen. Is there a...
we have an issue with 6th gear in our 2011 countryman and I’m thinking of using this company in Coventry for a reconditioned gearbox
had anybody used them??
