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)
