A/C dead at 46K miles :/ Any similar experiences?

I've started noticing a drop in A/C earlier this summer but having driven only 400 miles or so since May, I didn't had a chance to really confirm anything...

I did a 300 miles round trip last week and found the A/C to be working at about 10% of what it used to...

Any similar experience?

Luckily, my extended warranty ends Sept 25th, so I have an appointment Friday to take care of that! And a full inspection done on the car before warranty ends. I think that's a 150$ well invested.

Obviously you don't read this forum much. AC evap is a common failure item on these cars and needs the dashboard to come out to replace. Will def be covered under warranty.

My compressor went belly up at around 50K miles, luckily I had an extended warranty as well...

They will pull the dash out, make sure you tell them to be extra careful with not scratching the interior and assembling it right the first time. On my ex 2011 m3 they scratched some trim pieces and left a rattle that they could never fix. BTW my Evaporator died at 22k, funny thing is that two days prior they had a car with the same build day as mine with the same problem.

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...
