    Oh ok here we go:

    MG Metro...:blush:
    Corsa SRi -what can I sat it came with free insurance
    205 1.6 GTi - scary lift off oversteer
    306 GTi-6 - my first truly exceptional car, many laps of the 'ring, if only Go Pro cameras had been invented then
    SEAT Leon Cupra - cheap and masses of performance
    SEAT Leon Cupra R - Revo'd this was a real missile
    Honda Civic Type R - one trick pony, got bored very quickly
    Suzuki Ignis Sport -(just about a hot hatch) daily driver alongside a crazy Scooby
    ---- from here in the list you can see all of these on various track outings too------
    Ford Fiesta ST - daily driver alongside a 200bhp Westfield with the same engine, surprisingly good car.
    Mini Cooper S - daily driver alongside a 400bhp Evo IX
    Renault Megane R26.R - the GT3RS for the rest of us, possibly the best hot hatchback of all time (to date)?
    Audi RS3 - or Impreza for grown ups as I call it.

    The G60 was great, lots of low down grunt.

    VR6 was quicker and made a lovely noise.
    Nearly bought another one a few weeks back. Ended up with a VR converted MK2 Golf so still get the noise:eyebrows:

    Previously I was a Ford and Vauxhall girl, but never really went down the hot hatch route, well not proper hot hatch.

    I've have
    Escort XR3i's
    Escort RS Turbos
    Calibra's
    An Astra coupe

    but no Nova's or Saxo's etc although I did always want a Nova GTE when I was younger :)

    I'm on to my 45th car in 10 years of driving but only a handful of hot hatches

    by far the best ones I've had were the honda crx! Had 5 of them now with the best and most fun being the b20 vtec which I built from scratch and spent far too much money on lol

    some may not be classed as hot hatches but here's the ones I can think of

    honda crx x5
    honda civic coupe x3
    honda civic ef hatch
    honda integra b18c4 turbo
    rover 220 coupe turbo x2
    rover 216 coupe with honda engine x2
    impreza wrx, biggest regret of my car history, terrible cars
    honda s2000 which I still have, brilliant car!

    incase you didn't realise I'm a big fan of the Hondas, especially the ones from the late 80's early 90's, they went all soft and slow after that and the ep3 type r was a huge disappointment
