If you don't need the back doors I'd do it!

Personally I prefer a coupe look over a saloon anyday...

Because your 159 is sick ??

I can't say much about the GT, never driven one, but I have had a 156 TI, which is pretty much the same thing technically, I recently bought a 159 TI and I can say that the handling and overall driving experience in the 159 is better, I also prefer the look and styling of the 159. Why go back a generation ?

I've driven both and while the 159 is a nice car, I prefer the GT. Now, I wasn't comparing like with like, as my GT is on Konis/Eibachs, 17s or 18s and has a Q2 fitted. The 159 I drove was on 16s and standard suspension and no Q2. All make a difference.
