    What are the ideal settings for aircon/econ?


    I read kn here that aircon needs to be turned on once a month for 10minutes this sounds ok

    "Auto" on is running the air-conditioning. I also leave the auto-recirculation on, but not all cars have this fitted.

    The Audi manual for the B7 models says its best to leave it set to Auto and at 22 C for all year use.
    in summer one is supposed to open the windows of the car to let the heat out AND THEN after some time close the windows before putting the A/C back on Auto.
