#1 Air conditioning RHD

Post by antseries3etype » Sun Aug 02, 2020 9:23 am

Has anybody tried to fit an Aircon system to a series 3 roadster. I realise the roof is a pretty good option but there will be times driving overseas when the roof may have to go up to provide protection against the midday sun.

Any help would of course be appreciated

Regards

Classic Auto Air offer this system https://www.classicautoair.com/shop/197 ... ng-system/

Clayton Classics offer a passenger footwell system for S3 http://claytonclassics.co.uk/parts-upgr ... uar-e-type but there is no picture on their website.

Probably something like this

Hot country forum members will have all the answers I am sure.

We fit the Clayton system. I have it in my 67 FHC. Works well.

Clayton offer a number of different systems. Is there one in particular that you would recommend.

The one that we have used is the fresh air system with underdash vents.
