Based on his listed location, he's in Greece and I believe you could get the base AC or the automatic AC on the 86 when it came out. Stateside the FR-S obviously didn't offer the choice.

But yeah,...

I think it looks great; definitely better than the 1st gen concept. That being said, I would prefer a liftback with some more glass like the Gen 4/5 Celica (even though it would add more weight).

Exactly. I'm sorry the other dude bought wheels for a car from another manufacturer that won't fit this one - but I for one am glad the wheels I bought for my current FR-S will fit the new 86.
