i think the digital climate controls are inferrior to the dial type. for so many reasons. one the dials look way better, its annoying to go from off to on, (long story but my buddy who owns a 98' 328 hates his digital)

On the topic of climate controls, how do you know when they give out? On my 1995 325is there is no AC at all. The unit under the hood turns on, but no cold air comes out. could it be the climate control??? Thanx for any input.
