Re: 1988 e30 m3

Not necessarily a big deal. Depending on how nice it is it could be worth more than $20.

A picture and the price and we can advise.

Does the compressor turn off at full throttle?

I believe E36 and 46 do this but not sure on E30.

Does the A/C compressor turn off at full throttle?

Thats it. e36 and 46 I am pretty sure do this but curious about the E30.

Does the a/c compressor automatically turn off at full throttle?

I'm pretty sure our M3's get louder with time. I'm at 90,000 and I'm certain its considerably louder than it was when I bought it. Not sure why though.
