if i'm not mistaken, the coupes come with the sport suspension as standard equipment - it's only when you buy the sedan, do you get the suspension along with the wheels. otherwise, the sport package for the coupes is basically 17" wheels with power seats that have thigh support (manual extension that you pull out in front of the seats).

: Was able to get a test drive at a dealer in NJ on Saturday. The car I drove was probably the least sporting version of the E46 coupe you could possibly buy. It was a 323Ci, non sport, with the auto. And we had the AC on the whole time

: If this is the worst performing of the coupes, the best may be downright scary. It was very, Very, VERY nice. The engine was smooth, quiet, revvy, and POWERFUL. It stuck like glue when pushed hard on a highway ramp. At the same time the car was never harsh on the back roads we were on.

: Can't wait to try a 328Ci sport manual.
