Last summer I had my M3 converted, it had a broken hose that leaked out the r12. New hose installed and then charged with r134, No other parts were changed and car cools great. Cost $145.

Last week my '95 e28 535 was not cooling well. I took it to my local mechanic. He could not find a leak and speculated that over the winter the r12 seeped out as the seals dry up when not used for long periods of time (run your A/C once a month!!!) He charged it up with r134 at a cost of $110 including the new fittings. Car cools great.

In both cases I never changed the compressor, evaporator, condenser, or any seals, just added r134 and they are cooling fine.
