    LOL, well I want a sedan for the practical advantages. I'm just wondering if I'd be missing anything by not getting the coupe? Do they handle and accelerate the same?

    No HFP kit for the sedan as yet, no idea if one is planned. That seems to be the only thing really notable... bodykit and HFP suspension add-on availability.

    Better handling? Lighter? Different suspension tuning? Lower?
    The sedan has 9.5 cubic feet more passenger room than the coupe but is 74 pounds heavier. Also the sedan has a two inch longer wheelbase. This is all information from the Honda site. The suspension "should" be the same but I'm not quite positive about that (they have the same size sway bars at least). You would have to look at that dealer handbook to see what the difference in ground clearance is between the two. Other than that, as neteng101 said, I think the only thing is that the sedans will probably get the HFP body kit and suspension after the coupe if they're actually two different suspensions.

    Sedan ftw. Got rid of my 8th coupe for my FB6. No regrets.

    I'm also not 20 anymore. The sedan is a much more convenient as I don't need to contort myself to get things in and out of the rear seat.

    I chose the Sedan for 2 reasons.
    Practicality of having 4 doors, makes it easier to utilize the space.
    And the look of it.
    I find the angles on the sedan vs the coupe are less 'bubble-like'.. especially at boot of the car.
    Just sharper angles on the sedan.
    I uploaded this pic just to kinda show what I mean.



    The rear of the coupe is just too round for me. But the front end looks sportier on the coupe, but I live in Ontario, so the license plate just ruins it anyway.

    I noticed that too! Still, the Coupe and Sedan each have their good angles it seems

    I see that the coupe is 1.5" shorter, but I can't imagine that'd make much of a handling difference? It's just that I swear I read somewhere a review saying that the coupe was more agile, quicker to respond than the sedan. I could be wrong, lol.

    But yes, I too want that four-door ease and practicality, so it'd have to be a pretty big difference to sway me

    Si sedans are quite in demand in seems, whenever I do a search for Si in the area, they seem harder to get at the moment. In the end I suspect practicality wins out most times given the price differences are almost a wash.
