I don't drive a coupe because it's easier, it's because i enjoy the style and feel of it. Just like i don't drive a manual because it's better, i do it because it's more enjoyable. Driving for most people in the subforum is more than just having an easy car to take you from a to b. S2000's aren't hard to park also.
If you want a boring toyota commuter over a 6 speed 250hp rwd honda(or any sporty car for 17k), go ahead. That's your choice.
that's just my opinion though, there is nothing wrong with having your own.
