I may have missed it mentioned above... In a manual trans car, if the AC is on and you are traveling down the road at highway speeds, is the fan running or not? I would think it's off.

I drove an F30 loaner while my Takata airbag was being replaced. Very fast and quiet but I really didn't care for it and couldn't wait to give it back.

Even if your car in not on the list today, you should check back in a week or two - more cars will be added as time goes by. The list is continually expanding.
