Ok, if you're right regarding individual driving characteristics, how long could it take to do some different suspension calibrations? Not a year and a half.

I disagree on the new coupe affecting sales of the new sedan. Yea, some people may cross-shop, but they're going to sell a bunch either way, so introduce them together or closer than they are.
