Climate control/ZLS-Yes or NO

Well...as my endeavor to build my first dream machine is progressing....I need a suggestion.
I stay in Boston. ..so I am exposed to extreme temperatures although consistent.
With the new 2012 packages:
Climate control is offered as part of luxury package which also offers power rear shade,active front seats and ventilated seats--2400$
Among these, I really need the climate control and the power rear shade.
I can get the power rear shade as an individual option for 575$.
That leaves me with the question: Can I forgo 4-zone climate control?
. Will the heat/ac from the front vents be adequate to cool/heat the rear side. Are they powerful enough? I am really not that interested in the active seats as I just drive to work 15 min and rarely drive long drives. I would be saving close to 2K. Is it worth it. Please advice
Thanks
DS
