the 1 series.. lines are beautiful lights are terrible.
Yes, coupes are considered more sporty than sedans. Not old news by any means. Sedans lack certain color combos and the CF roof due to the perceived nature of coupe vs sedan buyers. The CF roof saves about 40 lbs. when compared to the steel roof with a moonroof. Subtract the moonroof (...and its necessary operating mechanisms) from the equation, and the weight savings are a lot less. I'm opting for a sedan sans the moonroof.
