a/c fixxed my gauges were the problem

I decided to take the 328i a/t to a good shop. even though my 134a gauge said I had 38 psi, it was 2 pounds low. they filled it, checked everything, now it's colder than ever. even at idle in the heat. Well, at least the wife is happy now.....And that is game point, ain't it?

I hope you mean 2 PSI low on the gauge. The system only holds 1.86lbs.

yeah...i think they just said and charged for 2 actual pounds...he said it only had .04 lb. in it. he agreed with me when i said it's supposed to hold a little less than 2 lbs. he said it had ambient pressure that showed up on my cheap dial as if it was enough...
