Well, was concerned as have heard the jokes about the 308 Air Conditioning being akin to "a mouse blowing on an ice cube." Well, had the 1985 Euro spec 308GTS QV AC system evacuated twice (took about an hour) and then filled with R-12 a few weeks ago. Went to Boston last night and it was blowing very cold! The thermostat worked to regulate temp, yet at full cold and full fan we nearly froze! A HUGE thanks to Verell for checking my system before i dropped $200 to have the done.
