My F30 is a hot car

Not in terms of looking good. We know the F30 looks hot. I'm talking about cabin temperature. Each of my previous 3 BMWs had sun/moonroofs. None have exhibited such warm cabin temperatures as the F30.

Today in Melbourne, the temperature on this overcast day, struggled to reach 18 a little earlier, yet the cabin temp was very warm when I had to make a quick trip a short time ago. The location where I keep my car during the day in my office has been exactly the same for the past 16 or so years.

My E90 was never this warm. Even when driving on previous days, I have noticed how warm the cabin is. I have to put the a/c on in 20 degree days, even if I open the sunroof.

Is anyone else experiencing a warmer than expected cabin in their F30?
