It gets Auto 1.6 when 3sgte is out. So both options available.
Yes, I used to have fogs. Now I prefer my car to be wild rather than fancy... High/low beams are equipped with HIDs, isliye lighting is no problem. hehe!
I didn't took it personally leikin the way you pointed out, I didn't like it.
Anyhow, this engine is from 1999 Caldina ST215. Celica/MR2 (Jap spec) Gen 3 are 245bhp. While Caldinas have 255bhp motor. There are some differences between these engines.
Also, Caldinas usually come with auto tranny but manual are also available but very rare.
