I'll take the 1 Series 3 Door Hatch, 130i. Of cours it would be better with a N54 or N55 in it, a 135i. I like the 1 Series because of RWD and its propotions that are different than all the other models in ts class.
But as I am from France there is another hatch that is not bad. It is done as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS or the BMW M3 GTS, it is the Renault Mégane R26.R. It has a 2.0l Turbo, 230 hp, Brembo brakes, Reacaro seats, roll cage, carbon hood etc....It is the fastest FWD car, it broke the N-Ring record of FWD and so made it in 8:17 min.
Well, the best of all is the Renault Mégane Trophy. It has a NA 3.5l V6 360 hp (from the Nissan 350Z, Renault and Nissan are together), at the back and is RWD.
Unfortunatly it is only a track model, so we'll have to be satisfied by the Renault Megane RS with its 2.0l Turbo 250 hp, soon 275 hp.
I just hope there will be a street version of the Renault Mégane Trophy as there was the Renault Clio V6 (Rear Engine & Rear Wheel Drive) with its NA 3.0l V6 255 hp. It kept up with the M3 E46!
