Hey all, I was just wondering if all of you prefer the g1 sedan or the g1 coupe.

Which one is better?

I have a 89 coupe and wanted a sedan. Not that I dislike the coupe but I love having 4 doors.

what do you all think?

I thought the coupes had the better rear suspension.
Coupes bodywork wins hands down, partic. the rear end.
mind you, I'm biased.

I have to vote for the sedan, The extra interior room is a definite plus. I hate having to hug the steering wheel to allow someone into the rear seat. And it still hauls a$$, :D :D

I vote sedan, gotta represent mine! I like having a lot of room for people to pile into my car. I also love the look on someones face when they get thier a$$ handed to them buy a 4 door import sedan. Pricless:) I do, however, really love the body and rear of the coupe. Whats up with the coupe shift nob, its a little to, ummm, nob like I guess, If you know what Im saying.:)

Coupe. Sorry to the Sedan folk, love all the G1s and G2s. But in my opinion the G1 Coupes looked a lot better than the G1 Sedans. The G1 Sedan, looks a little squarish and on the Accord-style side. I also dislike the rear strip and lights on the Sedan. The coupe had the better suspension always, not until 89-90 did the Sedan finally get the same suspension. Don't forget that for 86-87 the Sedans had the 2.5L vs the 2.7L all coupes came with and the sedans thereafter.

Space wise is a different story, I can take 4 people in the coupe, but 5 is just too many in the coupe. The steering wheel thing is the only thing that bugs me about the coupe. That must be why Honda made the Telescope/Tilting Steering wheel in the G2s.

Yah yah yah. Its clear to me that the Coupes are better. hehe, j/k guys / girls? Nah, i just like my car! all Legends rock. no debate there right people??? I wouldnt have purchased a G1 sedan. I like the looks of the Coupes significantly more then the Sedans. However, ALL G2 models are hot. U definetly get the trade offs. The sedans have more room... More room = more weight.. slower. not much tho... and the 2 dr's are nice... cus u dont have to give all ur friends rides @ lunch (if ure still in highschool like me. hehe) Anyway, just my 2 cents. :cool:

Is there really that much of a weight difference, I was under the impression the coupe and sedan were about the same. Im wrong a lot though.

Hey 2die4, your car looks great, I really like the rims. What size are they? 16's? What kind of camera did you take those pictures with? You guys are all starting to make me want a coupe! J/K.

I like my sedan... Without the four doors, I wouldn't be able to drive it everyday as it is my FAMILY car !!!

The only things I don't like are the rear lights on the trunk and the scarcity of aftermarket parts !!!

It's all about the Coupe's Baby... Much better styling, a little lighter, plus I get to trip people out with my roll down windows in the back. I guess I'm just biased, but I have never really liked the styling of sedans, just a little too boxy or something. Plus there is way too much plastic along the back side. My vote is COUPEMy Coupe

Yeah, no prob man. Do you know how much you paid for your rims? Im looking for some 17s for my car and dont want to spend a whole bunch. I sold some 15 inch pcw 5 spokes with low pro tires, they just looked way to small on a big ol sedan like mine. PCW isnt a bad brand at all IMHO.:) thanks.

Sounds like he wasn't racing you, or didn't floor it.
The G1 Coupe has the same 2.7L engine found on most Sedans. Not only that but they're lighter, and have better suspensions until 88 when the sedan got the same suspension.

Either his was busted, he wasn't racing you, or didn't really try.

Wait, you're Sedan has Engine Modifications? Well there's the reason you beat the Coupe. If we're talking stock, the coupe would win, if both cars had the SAME modifications, the coupe would also win, it's more aerodynamic and has less weight. The coupe weighs in about 100lbs less or so. Coefficiency of Drag is 0.30 for the coupe, 0.32 for the Sedan.

It would be so close in a short race, the coupe might win, but not by that much, maybe a foot or so. The weight difference doesnt make that much difference, neither does areodynamics at slower speeds. Yeah yeah, the coupes are better, we get the point.
