Changing the connectors is not very expensive compared to other parts, or the Freon itself, and is an important part of doing the changeover properly. The new fittings are an indicator to anyone servicing the car later (along with the sticker that is supposed to be put under the hood) that the system now uses R134. The service equipment and your air-conditioning system could have problems or be ruined if someone accidentally mixes R12 and R134. Sorry I forgot to mention the connectors in my previous posting.
