My 97 318i always seems to read 5 or 6 degrees warmer outside then it actually is. Is there any fix for this?

It might be picking up engine heat. Mine on my 1998 328i is accurate when sitting, but cools down and gives a 2 to 3 degree lower reading when flying down the road (from wind) but not as wide a variance as you experience - so it is just the same as having a glass mercury thermometer advertising a hardware store taped to the front of your car.
