The coupe does come with the sport suspension standard. The sport seats and larger wheels are added when you get the sport pkg. The sport suspension for both models is the same though.
There is a slight weight difference and the coupe has a lower roof line so probably a slightly lower center of gravity.
When I ordered my E90 335i, I had to test drive a coupe since there were no 335i sedans around. The differences are not noticeable in everyday driving imo.

If you are sold on the size of the 3-series platform and do not "need" the backseat for extended passenger time, a deciding factor may be the visibility afforded by the B-pillar placement in the coupe. If you are tall like me (6'4"), you may find that the coupe offers superior lateral visibility due to the longer doors and positioning of the B-pillar rearward vs. the sedan. I drive the 5-series, but have driven the 335 coupe and loved it. I did not feel as "cramped" as I did in the sedan - although both are superb cars.
Personally, I'd lean toward the coupe and enjoy driving the car to which you were initially drawn.
