hi again guys...

I just noticed that the sidewalls of my center consol (below the shifter, tape, etc) is very very warm after a long drive.
Since I have AT with right side drive, my left "resting" leg would feel this heat.

Is it normal?
If not, then whats wrong?

Thx a lot all...

the little spot under the on board computer is always warm after you drive for a bit, a great place to keep your gloves
