The evaporator costs a foolish amount to replace due to it's location. I'm having repeated issues with the AC in my car (likely evaporator) and if it goes out again the car's getting put on Craigslist. A steptronic 325i is a nice car, but it's not fast/fun enough to warrant spending thousands to have the stupid air conditioner fixed. I do know that a lot of people seem to advocate changing the majority of the system when it gets crappy like ours are, so you've got a head start if it is the evaporator. I know you are in one of the hottest places in the world and air conditioning is a must-have, but just weigh the cost/benefit of fixing the car versus selling it and getting one that doesn't have the same issue. I hope all turns out well for you!
