Default Ac performance ???

lets start from beginning.

my car is a maroon 96 318ti

i bought this car during winter so i wasnt able to check the performance of the ac but it was working.

Cars performance was very poor due to maintenance
after a few steps (oil, filters, spark plugs,muffler changed) it was ok.

then with the summer i realised my ac is poor too.

lets give some examples

when i start my car under the sun, ac starts working but if i dont drive it it never blows enough cold air after i start driving in a minute its ice cold(not the car it only blows icy cold) after 10 minutes its very nice to be in the car.lets say i stopped somewhere and kept the car running, in a minute it is same again not enough cold.

after realising these i decided to measure the temperature.
when i start it under sun light outside temperature 85 f degrees it blows 55 f degrees at maximum.

after driving continiuously 10 minutes it blows close to 48 f degrees

after stopping the car it goes up to 52 f degrees

now does anyone know that is it normal for a ti ?

poor air flow through the condenser. Mine does the same thing.

Well, my car is missing most of the undertray, that could be most of the issue, since the air isn't being pulled through the way it's supposed to be.
