    the DC2 is a better track day car
    the DC5 is a more comfortable car to live with as a daily driver
    either one will be enjoyable to drive
    either one will get its ass handed to it by any number of cars available from other manufacturers
    either one will be a giant brightly shining beacon screaming STEAL ME!!!!

    "better" is relative. i could tell you reasons why each would be better than the other. what do you want out of it? what are you going to do with it? what is your budget?

    DC5. It has a much better motor with more potential. It has a 6 speed for more relaxed highway cruising. It isn't as likely to be stolen. It is more luxurious and more refined in every way. It's a newer car (designed in the early 00's vs early 90's. You won't be paying a huge premium for "Type R" status.
