I have a 2008 Coupe. I also have a 2009 Sedan my wife drives. I believe the coupe actually handles better. I have done a few mods. 2010 Coupe front bumper, Steeda Cold Air Intake, Steeda Throttle Body Spacer, Steeda Strut Tower Brace, Magnaflow Cat Back Exaust. As far as the handling it still felt better before the strut tower brace. If you have this model of Focus GET THE BRACE IT IS UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!!!!
