some 150pd's i saw before i got mine came with all silver GTI..some had GT and a red I and mine came with all red TDI >when i enquired as to why so different the dealer told me what ever stock they had it got ?sounds about right
The badge colour mean nothing. When the cars are built they are badgeless. The colours are just luck of the draw. i have 20v turbo with a silver badge, my friend has an identical car with a red i badge.
The confusion comes because we are the only country where these badges apply. The 2.0 is not a GTI anywhere else and so is badged as 2.0 from the factory, and this means the 1.8T doesn't need a red I and so is badged GTI (silver) from the factory. The 150PD is badged TDI from the factory (like 150PD Boras).
As has been mentioned the problems occur when the dealers don't change them to what they should be for the UK market, or when cars are imported.
