x2 - coupes always are stiffer due to the larger door openings required for four doors (without weight adding reinforcement)

best test for the coupe I have seen is 0-60 in 4.1 which bests the recent sedan test.

the coupe is almost 2 inches lower than the sedan and with CF roof vs moonroof it will have a lower center of gravity. the copue also has closer to 50-50 wt balance so the coupe should handle better too.

its awesome the provide a choice but the coupe should have a slight edge in performence.
