Wow that is crazy. I'll try again today and use my very accurate tire pyrometer as a backup to the el-cheapo infrared gun.

I did a 30min drive in stop-and-go local traffic so maybe things run a bit hotter in stop-and-go vs highway? My ambient was only 45F
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers

'06 650i Cab - daily driver
