New to e60: Help with A/C Problem

Hey guys, I just bought my first E60: a 2007 530xi (after selling the '03 E39, I said I would never buy another BMW, but this one struck me and it was an impulse buy). It's Titanium Grey Metallic on Black leather; fully loaded with pretty much EVERY available option except sunshades. I usually never use the A/C in my cars (I prefer the open window/sunroof natural air feel) but I finally decided to try it out. On the lowest/coldest setting, I noticed that is was blowing hot air (this happened in both manual and auto modes). This was on a very hot day, so I figured "hey the car needs a little time to cool the air".

Well, this did not happen. So I panicked; I then tinkered with iDrive and found out the distribution was set to hot air (man, do I miss the manual temp dial in the middle---so simplistic). I shamefully cranked it to the "blue" bars, but still no cold air. The air is not hot, but it's not COLD either---even in MAX mode. Anyone had anything similar happen, or any ideas where to start? I figured you guys may have some great answers/suggestions.

Thanks in advance!
