Why would the left hand side of my car ( as you look at the front of the car from outside) (Bonnet and front wing) be hotter than the rest of the car after a 27 mile journey..? and I mean alot hotter.. almost cant touch it..?

That where the rad expansion tank and radiator in feed and probably oil cooler are, there is a larger heat source there. was it a hard 27 miles?

Is it to do with the journey you make, the direction of the sun as you make this sojurn the fact that its the summer and longest day and you may have a druid stuck up yer wheel arch

good point well made Buster, it may even be down to ley lines, or worse, bad feng shui. My money is on the rad feed pipework expansion tank and oil cooler after all the heat has to go somewhere.

I Like my druids well done anyway :D
