Jed I'm guessing you don't have aircon. The electric fan is on the models with aircon, yours is run direrctly off the engine.

Kilkenny, I used to live there. I might see you some time on the M9:D

My model has aircon so it has the electric fan but the temp. has never gone over 90 so I'm not sure if it's working. Maybe if we have a summer this year I'll have a chance to check:cool:
