    hi im looking at getting a coupe, im currently looking at either the 2.016v, 2.6v6 or 2.8v6 as insurance is similar on all three!
    The trouble is im not sure which to go for, the 16v seems painfully slow and 115bhp isnt exactly great for a 2ltr 16v.
    Then the 2.8 quattro seems very thirsty (20 odd mpg combined.)
    then there is the 2,6 but im not sure if it has a much better MPG as i cant find any info on it!
    So what do you people think? im starting to lean towards the 2.6 as a happy medium, but im just not sure.

    The 8v is 115hp, 16v is 140hp. There are also a few 2.3 5 cyl coupes about in the b4 shape, 136hp and not as thirsty as the v6's.
