is there a way that I can get colder air?
My G30 with 134 that actually cools well runs that high sitting still but it drops into the high 30s running down the highway.
Hope these tips help you keep cool.

Two critical items -- DO NOT adjust the evaporator thermostat to allow the evaporator to drop below 32F (do on a mild day with fan on MED) or it will freeze up the water condensation and no air will get through the evaporator (yes it happens). So the evaporator cannot get colder than 32F (30F for short periods), BUT you can cool the car better with higher air flow by replacing the old (and by now usually slow) A/C blower motor with a high speed unit -- PM134. Keep in mind there are limits on how cold you can get 94F inlet air due to the size of the evaporator core. The other issue is overcharging R134a. Unlike R12 you can't overcharge R134a or the refrigerant pressures will go too high on warm days reducing cooling and possibly damaging the compressor.
