I have only had our 2006 3 for a few months now, it is very used with 185k miles but was taken care of pretty well by the previous owner (single owner). One issue that started recently was the AC compressor would not kick on until a few minutes on the road. Once it did start it worked reliably. The AC light was on, but you could not hear the compressor kicking over.

I had the refrigerant level checked at local a shop and the pressure was good, so I was thinking the relay might just be sticky. It seemed unlikely, but was cheap enough to try. Sure enough, replacing the AC relay in the fuse box under the hood did the trick, now the AC kicks on as soon as I want. :grin2:
