Why my outside temperature reads too high..

I have always been impressed with the MB engineers perfectionism. -But when it came to my outside temperature i was dissapointed.. It has always read too high. Especially when the car was not moving.

Today i found out why.
The PO or some clever mechanic has stripped it to THE OIL COOLER..!!

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
