Re: A/c ?
Although it was an optional extra, it's actually rarer to find one without aircon fitted (certainly on the 1997 onwards models). I'm not sure what the original cost was to have it added but I guess it was low enough to make it worthwhile investment for most people who bought the cars from new.
AFAIK, the automatic climate control (called "climasystem") was never fitted to any of the UK sold cars and only features in cars that were sold in other countries. The aircon in the UK cars is just a manually controlled system.
