DIY Air Con Recharge??

It is possible to DIY an Air Con Recharge. I have heard that you can get these kits and DIY. Are these kits worth it??

Not worth it in my opinion, a specialist (or even KwikFit) will charge around £45 for a vaccum, pressure test and regas, plus they will most likley be able to fix any problems they find on the way (okay, perhaps KwikFit can't manage that bit).
Also air con gas is done by weight and not by pressure so you are not going to be sure you have the right amount in the system.
