I think that I've included almost all of the interesting ones that you can buy. Which would you pick and why?

well a lot of those cars don?t really play in the same league, and since I don?t like the new mini that much, but I like big engines in small cars, it would have to be the 135i... :rolleyes:

Alright fess up. Who voted for the Caliber? :p

For me it was a tough choice between the Astra and the Focus ST but seeing as I like the looks of the Astra a little better it got my vote. Plus Saturn is supposedly introducing the Red Line version so I could actually have it (unless they kill off the idea) unlike the Ford.

I am with the Astra also, not only better looking than the Ford but better looking than all the rest on the list. Having owned a Astra from the generation b4 the latest model and owning a Ford from the generation just past living with a Vauxhall/Opel is better than a Ford (imho) from experance.

I really like the Focus ST - looks brilliant, rides well, goes quickly, has lots of liftoff oversteer and it even sounds good. And yes, I'll have mine in orange. :D

Focus ST because it's just a great all rounder. It's pretty cheap, has a large interior, fast, and looks pretty good (the new one). I just wish they were sold here. :cry:

old Saab 9-3 coup?
The Megane, on the caveat that once Seat takes their fingers out and makes a proper hot-hatch Leon Curpra R, I might take that instead.

The current Cupra has 240hp... Pretty frisky if you ask me. :p

GTi, because its a great all rounder, can fit a large HDTV in it with shopping from costco (tested myself), and can go pretty damn quick. Also the DSG is a cool little option.

ive already made my choice...

after countless of test drives (Big up to Ford for their kind customer service), i still rekon you can have the most fun in the beemer, and thats all i care for.

Having said that....Civic Type R is still my favourite, but the 130 is the one ill take home with.... oh wait, ive already done that :p

S3 is not too shabby either, considering its a 4 pot Turbo and have lots of modding potentials, i wouldnt mind buying one in the near future. Pity about Audi's dealer, their service is beyond shit.


p.s : you left out the mighty 135i, which will smoke just about every other hatchbacks on the road. With a chip, induction kit and zorst, you are looking at 350bhp or more. And with a LSD, which you can buy from BMW, the 135 is seriously bang for the buck.

350bhp, straight 6 TT, 50/50 weight distribution, RWD is a mouth watering recipe....

From that list, the Civic Type-R, because it's a Type-R.

Of the cars currently available, I'd get the .:R32 (you only have GTI on the list).

Coming up in the next few months, I'd get the 135i, but we only get the coupe version here in the states.

I voted for the Audi for no real reason. Not a fan of Hot Hatches, I'd never buy one.
