I've owned an EM1 before and currently driving a DC2 Vti-r. I reckon my em1 was a better drive felt better in some way. The em1 obviously shit on torque. But the dc2 is slightly better. DC2 gearbox is really long and annoying. LOL, i sometimes cruise on gear 3 without realising. I'd probably go the ek4 mate. Shorter gears more fun to play around with.
