Your car's resale value will be much better if you have A/C. I know I wouldn't even consider a used car without it.
A/C is useful 12 months a year, to get rid of extra humidity in the car. Less humid means more comfortable, less fog on windows in the morning if you parked out of the sun's reach (which would help clear it out) and a better smelling interior (weird odours love humid air to spread... )
Your Sport GS/GT will have a black interior, too : those get REALLY hot during the summer, windows down or not.
Well, I think when you told me that the Sport GT comes with A/C already packaged, that kinda sold me.
The question is whether I can make up for the extra 5000 dollars. But that's my case, and I'm a poor student. And tuition is going up, so chances are that I won't be able to do any big purchases until after uni (probably gonna look at the 2005 MZ3 packages... maybe they'll change?)
But for 21k and a fully loaded car PLUS the A/C? I'd say go for it. That's a good deal.
