Can you take a picture of the 12v cigarette socket? Interested how they have wired it up.

Or is it just a plug that goes into the socket?
It just plugs into the socket. It has the standard type 12V connector.

What G is it, age, mileage, price?

I’m now 55 so I don’t think that car is “new”!
Obviously in this context "new" was meant to imply new in possession to me. I am under no disillusion of the car's age.

Seems to give more or less the expected ambient temperatures during various points of the day.

If you still have no joy from the dealer I might be able to help you next weekend as in 9 days away as I have the software to do the checks.

The weird wire? That is the exact same route my dashcam power supply goes so I think as others have already said it will probably end with a micro usb plug at some point near the mirror.
I've been in contact with the dealer through e-mail and I have in writing his "advice" to seek my own garage or someone he can refer me to, to have the car checked out. In theory that should be ok, right?
