Surely in Gods name there is a way to set the temperature to what you want, NOT what the car thinks it wants?:furious::furious::furious::furious:

Works brilliantly on mine.
What is poor is trying to work out whether the aircon is on in bright light - impossible to tell if it's lit up or not.
This was so much better on older Alfas - you couldn't fail to tell.

AirCo should maintain +14"C, resulting +16"C inner space irrespectively how high ambient temperature is.
I assume +10"C is not possible.

So if I want the temp to be 10 degrees - how do I do it?
10 degrees?:confused:
Do you prefer to sit in your car wearing lots of layers?
20 degrees seems to be the CIBSE norm for comfort (sat in a living room), a tad lower in bedrooms and a tad higher in bathrooms).

10*C... in this weather shouldnt be a problem. turn A/C off and turn to LO or set it to 16*C and crack a window. i dont know of any climate unit that will control temp below 16*C.

even my '98 Fiat Coupe goes down to 16*C and then LO on a dial (not digital numbers like in the alfa)

I take it the answer is 'no control' then!

Just fed up of being blasted with unpleasant hot air every morning as the uber climate control tries to get the temp up to 16 degrees. Opening the windows a bit only lowers the temp so the system blows even harder and hotter to compensate.

As above I have not seen any car with Climate control where you can set the temp less than about 14-16°C. Use the 'low' setting. Mind you that will probably freeze your ******** off :D

I wish mine would get to 16°C before I actually get to work (it does just about) :lol:

It is physically impossible to get hot air from recently started cold engine.
As I told before ( not remember to whom exactly ), your car is definitely equipped with PTS heater which generate this hot air while engine is cold.
Just switch it off.

:laugh:This has to be a crank thread surely?
If we lived in the tropics it would kinda make sense, but Greater London? :grin:

The 'Auto' buttons work great for the crappy winter weather when the windows would otherwise always be misting up.

Don't think I've ever come across someone complaining that the car heating system gets too hot, while at the same time not being faulty:thinking:

"Upto" 16 degrees? Are you made of molten lava? My server room at work runs at 17C and I bung a coat on if I'm in there for more than 5 minutes, why on earth do you want to be down at 10C?
