Fine by me. I've been concerned that they will simplify the range to basically fully loaded with AT or MT. If there is a base+MT then awesome. Although I quite enjoy keyless entry and start, but I'm...

Wait until they release the "GR86TRD" ... Great-Tard?

Unless they end up swapping GR for TRD and call it TRD86. This adds to the confusion of what both are supposed to be. But that's what...
