    quick question gang -
    does aircon when 'running out' sort of just fade away in terms of coldness?
    Ive never had a car with it before, and now its gone a bit warm, I'm wondering if its not quite up to scratch compared to last year.
    How long, when regassed does it last? I bought the car last April, and has been fine...until now.... it may be my imagination, but I guess thats how it starts

    Just had mine regassed today.
    Symptoms were the same as yours.
    Even on Lo, it wasn't cold and it's been getting worse the last couple of months.

    Now it's freezing. Paid £115 at the stealers for the pleasure though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I thought it was supposed to last 2-3 years.

    My stealer has just offered to do mine for £99 all in.

    See my post in the dealer discussion forum for the other 'offer' they are punting.

    The flyer I got about the air-con recharge says they "recommend an air-con service every 2-3 years, depending on usage".
