    Inside Temp sensor is right in the centre of dashboard where it meets the front wind shield glass.
    Have not checked outside temp sensor but someone mentioned that its on one of the ORVM's on the lower side

    Many important parts of Fiat Linea are imported. Here are the few I noticed:

    1. Desmodronic foldable key and corresponding locks [Italy]

    2. Headlight cluster ['Made by Mikado, Turkiye']

    3. Media Player/Sound system/Blue&Me

    4. Multi-function Information Display [We can even select the language, IIRC]

    5. Tail-lamp cluster

    6. AC condenser [Spain]

    In E+ you have to set the AC to blow to the foot level to feel it.

    There is a specific instruction in the Fiat Linea owner's handbook that warns against using handbrake for overnight/long-term parking, which might result in jammed brake. I remembered my late dad, a mechanical engineer, who had advised me the same a decade back and presented me with four wooden wedges. I never used his advice and the wooden wedges until I bought my Fiat Linea. After reading the warning in the owner's handbook, I started using them both! In addition to the wooden wedges, I keep the reverse gear engaged during overnight/long-term parking in my garage as my Fiat Linea faces downward slope.

    After removing the keys, pull the left stalk towards the steering (Similar to switching on the high beam).
    If you pull it once the head light will be switched on and will stay active for 30s.
    You can pull it multiple times to increase the delay by 30s each.
