    Smile Well chuffed

    I thought I'd test my Vec's aircon temperature having read the threads.
    25 degrees outside 8 degrees by the centre vent on recirculation.
    17 degree drop.
    Pleasantly suprised.
    I think it would be prudent to have a Kwikfit recharge next year though as a maintance item

    did you shut off both side vents on the dash? and take car for a drive whilst measuring with the lowest fan setting. This way you can get it to it's coolest

    The car was stationery as I didn't want the cooling effect of wind.
    There is a lot of misinformation out there about aircon temperature.
    A 25 degree drop from the outside temp is the goal....
    Apparently...

    oh yeah definately

    Just fun to see how cold you can get it. Got one at work the other day down to -4 degrees C whilst driving using the recirc button, lowest fan, and blocking off the two side mounted dash vents.

    Was chilly!

    KF did mine a couple of weeks back and although the coolent wasnt down by much, the oil level was further down so yes, a good idea having it done about every 3 to 4 years.

    Most if not all air con places shove a thermometer into the central vents and then measure it.
