156 Climate Control
Well, well, well, it's really hot (relatively) in London - yesterday was 28C and the air from my climate was freezing!
It appears that the system - now that it was vacuumed and re-gassed last year - works great.
I've also noticed that it reduces the temp of the air as the temp of the air outside increases, i.e. it seems to be more efficient the warmer it is. This sounds strange as it should always supply cool air regardless of temp outside, but this is a topic which has been discussed endlessly on this forum.
I was freezing in the car. It takes a good 5 mins to kick in, i.e. max fan speed, min temp, but after that, I had to increase temp to 18C and speed 1, but even that was too cold.
Looks like today will hit 30C - will report later on.
This is the first time that the climate has been working good in the 2.5 years that I've had the car and I put it down to the servicing of the system last summer - wasn't that hot last year and didn't get much of a chance to test its efficiency.
