    1.8 sxi vs 1.8 coupe?

    Which is faster because the coupe looks like it is more heavey. and howcome the coupe has a top speed of 130 and the sxi only 127?

    the cd of the coupe is less which means its more aerodynamic

    there both the same 0-60 in around 8.5 secs. the cd only comes into affect at higher speeds.

    I think you're all missing the key point here that the coupe looks much cooler and thus this doesn't matter

    in my opinion get the 1.8 at 17 i dont think your experienced enough to go straight to the turbo. the 1.8 is only half a second slower to 60 than the 2.2 but its after that speed that the 2.2 kills it. the 1.8 is lower insurance and running costs.
