I would like to install an Oil Temperature sender somewhere on the engine. I already have the turbo oil feed and oil pressure sender coupled together on the block.

Is it a good or bad idea to install the temp sender on the sump?

Engine = 4age 16v (Ser3)

Not a bad idea, but a good idea is to know what temperature the oil is that goes into the engine. This you can do by installing the sensor on the oilpump. On the exhaust side of the pump there is a tapper plug that you take out, fit the sender unit in the hole it leaves and you know exactly what temp the oil is that gets pumped into the engine.

Yes, all the oil flows past there directly from the pump.
