Thumbs up

So I'm driving home last night, '89 325i btw, and I ALWAYS have the little info display thing set to CLOCK. Anyways, i'm driving on the freeway when my car beeps at me and the display changes from CLOCK to OUTSIDE TEMP. It was like 35*F last night which is damn cold for So. CA.

Anyway, what is my car trying to tell me?? That its cold as frick outside??
