AirCon - not cold, but compressor working?

I didn't notice any change in airflow or fog when wife's x5!was freezing up the evaporator. I added maybe 7-8oz of R134a

Final low/high gauges. 45/245 psi. It was BRUTAL HOT over 90F so those are relatively high but fantastic results. 39F output at dash not recirculating with 90F outside.
.
Do you have the final pressure numbers after the minor refill? I have a feeling it's just low still

This example was Lumba2 (wife's car). At about 15 years old original compressor, I have a feeling I had to slightly overcharge to get dashboard results. I think maybe 40/240 weird be closer to on spec. Even though it was hot as hell that day I was only getting 50F in the dash with low side 40. 5 now psi and it's been working better than mine ever since. I don't think I've had to recharge either mine or wife's since the initial recharge after purchased. (2 Summers)
