Did you all notice the tire sealant and inflator as standard equipment? I guess that is instead of a spare tire, which can't fit in the trunk.

Yeah, we've known about the can of fix-a-flat for a while. No spare for us.

Where did you get this from conejo148?

Maybe that squirrel has another nice acorn with option pricing hidden away inside of it. :D

First, a note. The theft deterrent is described as Pass-Key III+ system. I believe there was a recent thread wondering about the exact nature of the theft deterrent.


Second, a question. What the heck is "rear glass backlight?" Hopefully it's not some factory "ricer" thing that makes you look like you're driving a fishtank...

I don't see how. I've never seen windows described as backlights. Also it's like a subnote to the glass rear window line.... very strange.

I was playing on google a little and did a search for "rear glass backlight." It seems from the results I have gotten that it is used for somewhat different meanings. For example, one result was a Car and Driver review of a Mustang convertable, and they use "backlight" to refer to the rear window in the convertable top. Another article on the BMW 6 series appeared to be referring to a glass windblocker that can be raised on the back of the car as a glass backlight. At least I didn't find the phrase used to describe anything that is really odd or out of the ordinary.

"Backlight" is a very common term for the rear window. It's common terminology at all the car manufacturers (along with other terms like beltline, sill, A, B and C-pillars, FOD (front-of-dash), tumblehome...)

The 3rd drink holder is for the optional Smokers Package. You get a little closable cup that fits in one of the cup holders and is your ash tray. That way you can have your ash tray plus 2 drink holders still. My ZX2 was designed that way.
