There is a lot wrong with the A/C and I had to make many mods. If you are unwilling to work on the car, you may have regrets. I am certainly willing to share my experience if you understand that you probably won't be happy with the stock A/C. My Elise has not had any problems during my ownership.
can you point me towards some threads regarding ac modification?
