Just wondered if it is possible to add air con. to a car that didn't have it as standard, and how easy and expensive it may be?
I've got a feeling the answer will be just buy a car with it already in, but just thought I'd check.
Possible: yes. Difficult: definitely. Expensive: depends on how cheaply you can get the donor parts for, but if they're faulty or if you make a mistake it can be stupidly expensive in both time and money. One of the worst bits is that the whole dash has to come out and it's a racing cert that you'll hear all sorts of intrmittent creaks rattles and squeaks once it's refitted.
The general opinion is that it's more trouble and expense than it's worth. You're correct in thinking that it's far more sensible to sell yours and buy a car with aircon already installed.
