Here's my 2 cents:  why is your cousin selling?  If his car is
due for major maintenance (at 180K miles, maybe the timing belt),
it may not be such a deal. Your car is a known quantity.  You
could probably fix it's problems for less than trading up to
your cousin's car.

On the other hand, your heart is set on a coupe.  Sometimes you
just have to follow your heart.  Just be prepared to pay for it.
