Need opinion on my itinerary :)

Planning a trip to Turkey in a stretch of 14 days around April, there are few key places we wanted to visit, which are: Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus and the Turkish riviera coast. But since time is a bit limited, we've decided to focus on only Istanbul and the Turkish riviera, and here's what I came up with...

Day 1 Arrive Istanbul airport early morning, transfer immediate flight to Izmir airport, rent a car, drive to Kusadasi, arrive late afternoon
Day 2 Based in Kusadasi, daytrip to Ephesus
Day 3 Based in Kusadasi, join a coach day tour to Pamukkale, return to Kusadasi
Day 4 Drive Kusadasi to Bodrum
Day 5 Based in Bodrum, planning to explore vicinity
Day 6 Drive Bodrum to Marmaris
Day 7 Based in Marmaris, planning to explore vicinity
Day 8 Drive Marmaris to Fethiye
Day 9-10 Based in Fethiye, planning to explore vicinity (Kayakoy, Oludeniz, Hisaronu, Kas)
Day 11 Drive Fethiye to Dalaman airport, catch flight back to Istanbul, arrive late afternoon
Day 12-13 Istanbul
Day 14 Leave Istanbul after noon

Since we'll be driving, the schedule should be flexible between Kusadasi all the way to Fethiye. Right now I'm allocating 2 or 3 nights in each town (Kusadasi, Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye). What we're not sure of is which towns between Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye has more sights that might require 3 nights instead of 2?

It's our first time in the coastal region too, wondering if we should sacrifice Pamukkale for next time and just focus on the coast? I've read that April is still very quiet for the coastal regions, but we think it's perfect for us.

I've been to Istanbul but my travel companion will be in Istanbul for the very first time. Wondering if 3 nights (2.5 daytime) in Istanbul would be enough? Should we add more days?
