How to test Aircon is working to Spec?

     Featured on

Does anyone know the BMW test to confirm if the aircon is working to spec? I assume this will be a table showing inside temp at the central vent vs outside temp, or similar.

My aircon seems to never get really cold compared to other previous cars I have owned, all which froze you hand if held in front of the main central vent for more than 30 secs. These being Merc, Toyota, Kia, Peugeot, etc, so a fair range.

Seems to have been like this from new and my local dealer just says it is Ok without actually testing anything, or using temp probes. I would like to give them some measurements against the BMW spec, to get it fixed before it goes out of warranty.

I don't see any other threads asking about specs, just impressions it is not working correctly (like me), and I would like a definitive answer either way, if possible.
