Question about how Air Conditioning works on BMWs

I am glad I tuned in to this thread. I have been fiddling with the climate controls since I bought my car.

You should try to negotiate from the invoice price not MSRP. Remember the 2014's are coming too.

Re: Power Outlet / Cigarette Lighter

It is my understanding that all of the previous models did light up.

Re: Power Outlet / Cigarette Lighter

I have a fully loaded Luxury model and I doesnt light up. It's not really anything that I am upset about, but I dont understand the logic behind the decision.

Re: Power Outlet / Cigarette Lighter

Service guy said it should and my salesperson is checking on it for me. I hope some other people chime in so I know for sure if it should light up.

Re: Please advise with used car price.

That's what I paid for my 2013 328xi (service loaner) with 5000 miles on it. MSRP 51, 995

I hope this helps.

Re: ac compressor replacement?

Exactly! ^^^^^

Do not open the ports on the compressor until you are ready to install it. The oil will pull moisture from the air just like the drier will. My guess is that BMW uses PAG oil, so...

Re: New To The Forum - Need Help With AC

Locate the low pressure switch and jump the switch. Jumping the switch sjould engage the clutch on the compressor. You may just be low on refrigerant and need to top it off.

How much for a set of these? I would like to use the factory tires on my 2013 328xi if possible. I want to run the original wheels with winter tires for the winter.

Re: a/c help please

Look for the large diameter tubing coming from the compressor and you should find it. Maybe on the accumulator???? I am not an expert on BMW A/C systems, but most systems are very similar.

Re: ac compressor replacement?

You can do that. A quick lube may be more likely to do this since a full service shop would want to install the compressor too.
