Re: Leaving a\\c on in winter and if so what setting?
Something else to add to this one regarding this nasty smell and wearing out nonsense! My car is now just over 6 years old and it still makes ice cold air without any problems and smells pretty much like the day it was bought (with a slight touch of vanilla magic tree).
The previous owner was also like me (albeit german) and used to leave it between 20-22 for 99% of the time, I strongly suspect the only aircon systems that stop working like new are those that arn't used!
