The sedan loaner cars I get from dealers seem cheaper than my almost identical coupe. Not sure if they come from a different assembly line or something.
Dont coupes cost more out the door new? If so, perhaps it isnt better resale value, but the exact same decline in value, but more expensive to begin with.

As far as comparing interior quality, you sure the loaner you are getting has leather?
