ep3 or celica gt190

Does anyone have any experience of both the celica GT190 and the civic type r ep3?
Looking for a second car for a bit of fun on a weekend or in the summer....maybe even the odd track day.
I know the ep3 is quicker but fun factor is what I'm looking for

I have owned a tuned EP3 and driven a Celica 190. The EP3 is the faster car with a nicer gearbox. Also much more tuneable. handling wise there isn't much in it. The GT190 version had lower TRD suspenion i think, but both cars handled brilliantly. Maybe a bit more steering feel in the 190. Also the GT version is, in my opinion a very nice looking car. And quite rare.
