    Congrats. OK so which interior do you prefer from a practical view? How does the 5dr compare to the 4dr and which is easier to live with?

    honesty as far as a practical view the hatch is the way to go, they both had roof racks on them.. If we go out of town we take the 5 door, I have a rocket box that goes on top.. Brodie has his seat in the back and the other side is folded down so (back a few months) Carrera and Enzo had room to law down (full size boxers). Now we only have Ruger so he has a little more room then he needs but the rocket box is full waterproof and less clutter inside the cabin.

    The sedan at least in 2011 has a TINY trunk that has a weird elevation change inside with a tiny opening.. I love the sedan and rarely ever even open the trunk so it is fine for me but for a family.. Buy the hatch..

    Thanks for the info. I did not know about the elevation change. I think your comments will be useful to new bodystyle shoppers since you have both to directly compare.

    Which wheels are those in blue?

    Those are her winter wheels they are the drags I was telling you about in another thread a bit back. They are light weight, fit great and are identical to the 5zigen fn01c I have had prior.

    Ill try and take pics of the trunk so you can see what I mean, it is really strange..

    haha yea I did I sent a pic to matthew he said dont do it.. then I sent him the pic of the wheel with all 5 on and he said ok do it. I drove around for a week with 1 wheel like that and decided that I liked the look so I did it.. I am still deciding on wheels, I was thinking a 19" but now maybe going with an 18x9
