Basically, we thought the Milano a/c to be just adequate even driving to Las Vegas in summer, which is hot hot hot. Not nearly as good as the 94 LS or even the 91S, but still...
We survived, except for the Milano over heating in Phoenix stop and go driving in 113F. That was a killer, and I can see why Alfa stopped supplying the 2.5L Milano radiator, the 3.0L version being better. The basic Milano cooling system just not able to keep up.
Our Milano's system has been untouched since 89, and it still works, sort of, although I'm sure the R12 level is way down. Doesn't cool like it did. Hard to find a place which will touch the R12 yet. One a/c repair place, which didn't, told us to forget changing to 134a, as we did with the 91S, and just pay the price for having more R12 put in, checking with dye first for leaks, and then topping off with R12.
They were pretty adamant about not filling with a substitute gas. No way, no how!!! Well...
