Haha... I agree the analog is just as good for practical use, if not better. You don't want to have to do the conversion of 1.8 times the temp + 32 degrees while driving just to set the temp to what you want.
I still want the analog automatic temp control that the IS300 has though, that thing is sweet.
The digital is so much better than analog. Just turn the right knob to the desired temperature and the car sorts out everything. with the analog you are constantly turning knobs to keep the temp stabile.
I had analog a/c in my 6th gen celica. I have the digital a/c now. Way better than that, wy better
the fact that we (the netherlands) measure temp in centigrade makes it easier indeed
