I have a a leaky aircon condenser on my Cayman and the gas level is low. I can't afford to have it mended at the moment.

Would this affect the temperature of the heater?

Seems to take a while to heat up, but eventually works.

Thank you chaps as always.

Sorry Kim .. i was late last night so didnt see all the posts i should have Sad

The A/c wont affect how the car warms up so its not that , you have a manual so its not the usual Tiptronic valve sticking so you either have a Stuck thermostate or its just winter and bloody cold !

Im leaning towards its winter !

Its possible you have an over reading sensor and ill check that next time i work on your car .. REMIND ME !

But i still think its just cold weather .
