Has anyone here gone from a 2 door 3series to a 4 door 3 series or vica versa

I was just wondering because one day in the future when I trade in my 330Ci I was thinking of possibly getting a 330i (or some other 4 door) and wanted some peoples experiences.

Whenever I drive my 2 door I feel like I am driving a sports car but I can't imagine the 4 door feeling the same way. I know the cars are almost the exact same but does the 4 door feel like your in a sports car.

Don't knock me for saying this but the Ci is a really 'cool' looking car. Whenever I look at mine I can't help but think that I wouldn't have the same feeling looking at a 4 door.

Then I will see a nice 3 series 4 door on the road and think to myself how good it looks . . .

The ' Ci ' looks better, but the ' i ' handles/drives better.

Just my 0.02

To me the Ci feels heavier (which it is). The sedan is more rigid, especailly without fold-down seats (less creaks and rattles) it maybe has a little firmer ride with SP vs. a coupe (rigidity?) The steering to me appears to be sharper and it also feels like it handles the S curves better than a coupe. I've spent sometime in a 01 330i and I can tell enough of a difference between it and my 330Ci.
