Yepp...extra rigidity probably doesn't mean much in case of accident. It's more about how car feels when cornering, equipped with sporty rubber and stiff suspension. Also, expect more sqeaks and rattle in cab after few years. Personally, i prefere coupe becuse it's sportier and less expensive...but if looks are important, cab is the way to go. The cab is good looking car. Cheers.
