Well, to tell you the truth, I have no experience with R134a equipped
cars. My points of reference are the few toyotas and Rx7's that we have
owned. The 92 Camry that I am forced to borrow (shame, disgust) until
the 90q is done gets too cold for comfort. I remember it being like that
in our MR2 and Previa as well.

On that note...does it seem fair that the guy who was letting me borrow
his 450SL, now only feels that I deserve the Camry? I'm getting screwed.
