AC repair. What to use in place of R12 Freon

Benz Guru help please........
I'm looking for what is the best to use. Some like the r134a conversion but I've been told it's not as cold as the old R12 freon. Also heard that there is a R12 alternative to use without any conversion. What do you use and where can I order it from??
Thank you!

Have you tried a simple quick search? This issue has been covered 100+ times just this year. You need to use R-12 and you NEED to do a search.
