    Seems like the northern states are seeing temps in the 90's now.

    I need AC. I bought my current car without AC but it had the compressor and I just needed to have custom lines from the e36 compressor mate to the stock e30 AC lines.

    Now, I have AC!

      I'm 100% with djjerme.
      I dont need or care about AC in my sports cars.
      In my truck, in my dailys sure, but in my sports cars (the street ones that are not race cars) I dont have one care about AC.

      When Im in my Cabrio, the top is down unless I get caught in a rain storm.
      When Im in my E30M3 the windows are down and Im listening to the engine.
      Im long past my 20s (by well over double)

        Comments are already whining about lack of AC.

        Most of the US needs AC?

        Sounds like something a Californian would say. Since most of the states exist above the Mason Dixon where we maybe use the AC a couple months of the year, this cracks me up.

        Wasn't the build thread on this car here in the archive somewhere?

        EDIT: Sorry for ragging on Cali, but god dammit, if you move from Cali here, stop telling us how great California is - then why did you leave, and why do so many people register their cars in other states or through Montana LLC's then.. ARGH!! (I'm fine, just need to rant before my coffee kicks in.)
        That Touring is a bad piece. I like it alot. The no AC wouldnt even be a small speedbump for me on a cool car like that.

          ^ No problem. If you guys like sticking to your seats in 80 degree weather.. That's your business. The vast majority of buyers want AC. Period.

          Edit: I forgot probably the #1 reason the cars must have AC to command highest dollar, regardless of residing locale. Most of the older guys here have a wife and kid(s). In order to enjoy one of the toys usually involves taking one of those things with you in the E30. Which means it better have AC.

            If Im driving an LS3 E30 Touring, the wife is probably never riding it. Shed say hell no. The dog doesnt ride in the nice cars, she sheds too much.

            Daughter loves riding in the Alpina and the R5 turbo with no AC.

            But your mileage may vary..

                    yall that live up north, drive without AC, it's fine. But here, when it's 100 degrees out and it's humid...there is no way I'm not driving without AC. My e30 is my daily.

                            Couldn't have said it better. No AC would be a hard deal breaker.

                            AC has been required in all the places I've ever lived. Well, maybe not when I would live with my mom in the summer time. She used to live on the northern Oregon coast. That was nice.

                            Now I live in hell on earth.

                                It's a wagon with a full interior, not a stripped out track car. It will be worth more to more people with AC, period.
