In my 164 it is jap and never cools well enough.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Vince: so you're saying your a/c does or does not work well?
My experience with 156 has been similar to what Pascs said. If the car is out in the sun, sitting in traffic, the cars (whatever nationality) with NipponDenso compressors tend to have cooler a/c. Sandun units are Japanese, and may not be as effective as the ND ones,IMHO.
