156 GTA or GT 3.2V6

With a future car purchase in mind, which of these cars is the best - the 156 GTA or the GT coupe 3.2V6?

I know the 156 GTA is slightly quicker to 60, but the GT coupe is available with the 3.2 engine on an newer reg plate.

Has anyone owned both? I love my 156 2.5 V6 but I have had it a long time and I'm thinking of an upgrade. I'm not considering anything other than these two cars with the engines specified.

GT . 155 . 75

if you can feel the different in acceleration between the two, i'd be impressed.

i'd personally decide based upon other factors like:
*sedan vs couple/hatch: practicality
*ride comfort/handling: GTA is firmer but not what i'd call 'too hard'
*interior design (and exterior)
*age of vehicle, condition, mileage.

i honestly don't think one is necessarily better than the other. i'd be happy with either. though i do personally like the added safety net that VDC provides.
