    Question mod...do it, dont do it

    thinking of creating a mod where i can flick a switch and the reading on my mfd (standard not trip) will show internal and external temps (not simultaniously), it'd be a cheap (very cheap) little mod and easy enough to wire up.

    Im just wondering would any of you be bothered about it or am i just wasting my time...been thing about if for a while. DO it, dont.

    You'll be sat in the car, so surely you'll know whether it's hot or cold inside it.

    Seems a bit pointless to me

    Agreed, seems like a mod for mod;s sake with no function.

    Why would it matter if we were bothered about it? You'd be doing it for your own good/pleasure/info not ours

    I'd say do it, if you like to know the temp inside the car.

    Oh no

    I only said it seemed pointless to me... and that's coming from someone who doesn't even have the external one any more. It's either cold, just right or hot to me. The actual temp (in numbers) is immaterial

    If you want to do it then do it..

    would it be easy to do the same thing but have a temperature sensor in your inlet to tell you the temperature of the air your car is taking in?
