The coupe of course is a tad bit faster seen as it doesn't have the crap for the convertible roof. $15k - $18k is probably more towards the 96 end, or 98 with high mileage, it just depends on how it was drove/maintained. I know some people are hard as hell on those cars and it's tough buying them used.
