As if to prove a point, I forgot to put the windshield cover on, windows closed.
It was a stove. 60 Celsius while it was just 22 outside.

To make matters worse the inside of the dash, where the ventilation channels are, gets seeringly hot too; it takes minutes before it cools down to normal levels even at full blast. So my first miles are with the windows full open and the vent at max. After that, entering the highway; close all, ventilator low. A/C on with recirculation if needed (not today).
