07 BMW 335i A/C not blowing cold enough air! Am I stuck? Any fix on this?

2007 bmw 335i automatic

I live out here in Arizona and when I get into the car, I turn it to the lowest temperature setting (60) and blast it on max, but it just barely takes the edge off. It still blows cold air, but just not strong enough to combat the arizona heat. My Acura before did just fine with the heat. I have tried all settings possible (max, inside circculation, outside circulation, made sure the dial was set on blue) ... Is this just the way the A/C is for this series? Can I fix this?
Freon recharge?

you can get a thermometer probe, put it in the vent, see how cold the air is, there should be a chart on the web that tells you what the outlet temp should be vs outside temp, otherwise take it in and have the AC serviced and if they say its ok, then you are stuck with what you have

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

As I posted in another thread, please be realistic in your expectations. Most air conditioning systems do not perform well when the external temperature is nearing 120 degrees Fahrenheit. That is hot, even by Arizona standards.

You can check these things, to help in the short run:
1. How is your refrigerant level? Your car uses R134a, not freon.
2. Is your condenser clean, or is it full of bugs, leaves, and dirt? The condenser sits in front of your radiator.
3. Is your electric radiator fan cycling properly?

In the longer run, these are things to consider for an Arizona car:
1. Buy a light colored car; white is best.
2. Buy a light colored interior (something other than black).
3. Buy a car without a sunroof. The glass increases the "greenhouse" effect, even with the sunshade closed.
4. Buy a car with window shades in the rear. Or consider having the windows tinted.
5. When parking, use a windshield sunscreen. This is assuming you cannot find a shaded parking place.

Incidentally, turning your interior temperature dial to 60 does not make it cool any faster.

Anyway, good luck with the heat.
