Slow to engage AC

Been this way too long. The AC takes about a minute of use to feel ANY change
in air temperature. It works fine after that. Right at 40 on the outlet duct.
No clue why it takes up to 2 minutes to get going.
Pressures are good on the gauges. When cooled down, the AC is almost too cold.
Strike that, I live in Texas.

I was going to say you have the same issue as me, a variable valve compressor, but looks like you have a pre-facelift? I thought they only put that garbage on our facelift X5s. Does it kick in if you rev the engine? Does your compressor turn while not blowing cold (meaning always)?
