I just bought a 1999 323i with only 33k miles, it looks, runs, and feels like a new car. the only thing i cant get is how the A/C comes on every time i start the car. i took the auto off and i turn the A/C off before i turn off the car, and when i start the car again the A/C comes on, in fact it always comes on when i start the car. Its driving me nuts, so i take it to a BMW dealer and they tell me thats the way it is. Im like you gotta be shitting me. you see ive never come across a car that turns the a/C on when the car starts. so i need some knowledge, please does any one have a 1999 323i that does the same thing?
