Air conditioning

I demo-ed a GTI yesterday with the ambient temperature at 110 degrees. Yes, very hot. My concern is that the air didn't seem to blow all that cold. Since I live in a very hot summer location I'm concerned. Do any of you live where it is hotter than haides...and how is the air conditioning in your GTI? Thank you for your responses.

It's hotter than Hades everywhere this summer. I live in the northernmost metropolis of North America: Edmonton, AB and we touched triple digits over the weekend.

I found the a/c to be a little week also, when I first got the car. Luckily it was April, so it didn't matter all too much. Now, after it's been through some work outs I think it has actually gotten better. Does anyone else agree, is the a/c slightly more powerful now than it was when you first got the car?

Also a hint: you can increase the air-flow to the front vents slightly by closing the rear vents on the back of the armrest. Also, on super hot days the circulation mode helps a lot.
