Pocket rockets

Which one and why? Consider any criteria you desire. (PS, I dunno if all of these would be considered pocket rockets, and I'm sure I left some off, so editorialize at will.)

BMW M1 because of RDW! Or MCS just because of its size and style.

The M1 because it's a supercar! Duh!

I don't know what you're calling an M1, but this is the real M1:

My vote goes to the Mini. Yes, it is FWD, but the Mini ONE I drove was a blast. I can only imagine a Cooper S being even more so.

M1 (actually M2) is the only one we may never get to buy in the US. Bastards.

I voted for the R32 because it's great granddad coined the phrase "pocket rocket" in the first place. The Rabbit GTI.

For some reason, I knew you'd pick the VW.

The M1 because BMW has needed to put a car like this out for a while, I guess since the absence of the M coupe/ roadster. My uncle just picked up a 2002tii as a fun side car, odds are we'll be seeing the M1/ M2 in our family at some point for the fun factor and sportiness the new baby M's will likely provide. Plus I think it will look better than most of the other available choices on that list.

Yes, in wagon form. But I think Audi's new front end style is hideous.

I don't know. The pic with the car with the A6/A8-like grill treatment looks PSed.

All I can say is I hope that treatment doesn't carry over to the A3/S3/A4/S4.

I would add a Renault Clio v6, Lotus Elise to the list too, both are cars I would want to add to my dream collection.

Of the one's you listed, i'd take the VW. Really any Honda included should be an Type R

I'd be willing to bet it will not be called an M1.
