I would get the coupe automatically if it looked like the sedan. The sedan looks a tad bit better IMO. The silver lining on the side and the lights.

Why did they make it so different :/

I went after the coupe because I like the styling of the coupe more. You're still young, get the coupe!

I do think that the sedans are slightly more comfortable, in its own way, for some reason.

No brainer. Coupe. Only saying that because of your age and gender.

You said you like the sedan's looks better. The sedan is more practical and a few grand cheaper. Why even ask which one to get?

you must have done real well for your self or born well.

anyhow coupe if you just have a GF to drive around, sedan if your going to cram all your friends in.

Be careful with the car.

I ask because I want to hear other peoples opinions, I might realize you are right...

The coupe seems to be the car for the "younger" people idk why. But all I see in it is having to get out of the car for other people to get in and to be uncomfortable in it. And it looks pretty feminine to me, the sedan looks like a meaner car. Which I can relate to

Dont know though gonna have to wait and see.

Forget the generalizations about age, practicality, blah, blah, blah. Go for the one that gets your blood going, pure and simple. The sedan just does something to me. Someone else would totally feel that way about the coupe. Which is it for you?

I went sedan. However, I'm married with two kids so my opinion might not mean a damn thing to you. Coupes look great, but I've always been a sucker for sport sedans.

OR

You get stuck driving all the time to the bars because you have a comfy sedan.

Thats why I had a coupe when i was younger. No one ever wanted to drive in my car since it was a pain to get in and out of. Not like i was complaining. I instead got my drink on.

*Edit* I mean when you turn 21 that is..

Very true. With a coupe, you are pretty much locked into only taking one passenger with you at all times.

Normally I would say go coupe, but that black sedan looks really nice.

one suggestion i have is to get an easier color to maintain as black is
very difficult to keep up, especially seeing that your only 18 you might not
have a good idea of what your up against as far as keeping the paint looking
swirl and defect free. if your set on black then go for it.

Sedan - you said you like it yourself.

So do I. The sedan just looks meaner, to me.

Either way, be careful as being 18 and a car full of buddies can lead to bad decisions. Not saying you would, but remember.
