    EG hands down. OBD1 platform, great for tuning, nice body design, lightweight. Choice of many. I've owned 4 eg hatches myself and I currently own my fourth now.

    EGs are cool. EKs are cooler. I say it comes down to what motor you want/goals and your emission laws...

    The EG is lighter, and easier to tune since it's wired for OBD1. I say go with an EG hatch...

    if emissions arnt a problem, you can go OBD1 in the EK. if you liked it more for some reason. idk i like it just a tad better thant he EG. maybe it's more areodynamic? :shrug:
