coupes are a little lighter but they are also more solid structure wise but still require subframes to be one of the first mods to the car.

Notchbacks are slightly lighter and slightly stiffer. Hatchbacks have more room and are slightly more aerodynamic.

The hatch would probably make for a better DD just for the sake of being slightly more practical. You can fold down the rear seats and fit a LOT of crap in there. Hatches are also more common (as both LX and GT models were offered in a hatch, only LXs were offered in the notch), and they're usually cheaper.

Looks are a matter of preference, personally I think the LX hatchback is one of the UGLIEST cars ever made. Which is weird, because with the GT ground effects, or even the Cobra ground effects, I think it looks pretty good.

Yeah, I was looking for a notch when I settled for another 'vert.

5-speed 5.0 notchbacks are NOT easy to come by out here.
