autogeek didn't mention anything about it being out of stock, but i'm guessing it will be when amazon/detailedimage/detailersdomain don't have it. give this a shot:

Seems like a good idea but I'd like something that goes into the vents.

I like this stuff better than the 1Z. Pick up a can of the Frigi-fresh too. It's supposed to be sold only to professionals, but some dealerships will sell it over the parts counter without issue.

Nothing that goes into the vents can saturate the evaporator like the klima clean shit in through the drain tubes. You'd have to remove the evaporator to really clean it with anything else that doesn't foam. Once you have an odor, you have bacteria built up in the fins. The best thing is to use the a/c, and turn the compressor off, raise the temp the last 5 minutes of your journey and continue to dry it out for several uses. The Klima shit is out of stock just about everywhere.

BMW TIS specifies using an ultra sonic dispersant in the vehicle using recirc mode, but that machine is $$$.

The Kool-It stuff suggests going through the drain tube, just not sure i can get to it without a jack...

Yeah, that's rough. Ramps would work if you can rent them.
