Mostly tarmac, occasional forest. The coupe has 6cyl motor already installed, I think it has better brake and stud set up (could be wrong there). Not sure why it would be less nimble, wheelbase is same, maybe weight at the rear. I have never been able to get a definitive answer on how the weight compares. AFAIK the coupe is heavier but not sure how much. I think you can pick up a compact for less money. Then of course there is the killer blow- the coupe is nice looking whereas the compact is the most ugly thing on wheels. ( I will probably get several death threats for saying that) :D

everyone is aloud there own opinion I loved the coupe just like to try new things I think compacts about 200 kg lighter. there all good cars in there own way I spose only one way of finding out how it goes as I get on with it.
