Thanks for the advice. Do you just shoot the bottom of the pan with the infrared thermometer?

Please let me know on the Foxwell, if you get a chance. Seems like that would be more accurate.

Just to make sure: the rear roundel on the E53 is 78mm. I didn't see any CF ones in 78mm when I looked for a replacement. Mine, MY04, built 10/03, was affixed with double-sided tape without grommets.
