Saw a nice mkV GT in a coastal town in East Lothian today.

It was a five door in Sage Green and was obviously a GT. I thought I'd have a quick look at the badge to check if it was a TDI or FSI and the badge read

2.0GTI yes, with a red I!

Why, why, why, why, why[?]

some people eh[:O][V]

I'd be well proud of a GT so why kid on it is something it is not!

Latest VW price list issue 4 2005 MY (effective 01/01/2005)

Lists the GT TDI(140) and GT FSI(150) under the GTI section.

Pukka GTI is listed as GTI 200 PS

If sticking on GTI badge makes them happy... so be it.

I suppose if it makes them feel happy then fine.. Some people may argue that the MKIV GTI doesnt deserve the GTI badge, though at the time it was the only model that could have the badge.

I suppose its all down to personla prefference.

Id like VW to produce a car with the letter X in its name, then I can have/make the FELIX badge I want.

You obviously underestimate the power of the RED I

Its power gains are limitless, along with go faster stripes it gives powergains never seen b4!

LOL

Only reason i want it was i saw a 1.6 FSI badge on a touran (in a dealership) and thort it looked funky, so i thort either blue or red for new golfy[:I]

Don't forget the further power advantage endowed by using parking lights and foglights at the same time.....[:eek:)][;)]

VAG parts do a GTX badge. Go to there online shop and type badge into search box.
