2008 WRX thermostat or temperature gauge is way off

I joined the subaru family and bought a 2008 WRX. This is the first car I have ever owned with less than 150k miles (always owned junkers). So of course, I want everything to work. One thing that bothers me is the temperature gauge inside the car above the stereo is always WAY off. How can I fix this?

Has the sensor been moved? In stock form it's in front of any radiators so it sees fresh air. If for some reason it has been moved or an intercooler was put in front of it you can see higher temps than ambient.
