      GTI? That's Get Tickets Instantly,
      My rhymes? They spit out the spicket religiously,
      For shizzle G. Drop the clutch, let the rubber sizzle see.

      Every GTI owner/enthusiast should know this.

      I am not trying to start an argument here, but can someone prove this? I was certain that GTI meant Grand Touring/Tourismo International.

      Proof? We don't need no stinking proof!
      I'm not sure where one would go to get something 'official', for what it is worth though I've seen "Grand Touring - Injected" in reputable magazines going back many many years...
      The last person you would ask would be a VW dealer, of course. They're the ones who will tell you that VR stands for Vroom.

      enjoy

      hopefully this settles any arguments
      Quote &raquo;
      Q: What does GTI, GLI and so on mean?
      A: L = Luxe (base model)
      LS = Luxe Special, couple more do-dads
      GT = Grand Tourisme, better equipped & usually a larger engine than the "L" series
      GL = Grand Luxe (geared for more luxury), basically == GT
      GTI/GLI = Originally, the fuel injected version of a GT/GL which means it
      produced a lot more power. With most cars FI, the GTI/GLI
      designation means a more powerful engine than a GT/GL model,
      sometimes also with a better suspension. Note that originally,
      GLI != Jetta, as the case in the USA.
      SL = Serie Limite' (limited series), like the Karmann series in US.
      Really a variation on a GT.
      GTX = Same as GTI but used in Europe and elsewhere.
      G40/60 = GT version with VWs G-type supercharger. The number is the width
      of the G-charger (lader in D) coil in millimeters. For those who
      aren't aware, the G40 is used on some Polos, the G60 on Passats
      and Corrados.
      VR6 = Cars based on the new staggered 6 cylinder engine (in-line-V-6).
      SLC = Sport Luxury Coupe, the VR6 equipped Corrado in the US.
      Syncro = VWs version 4WD distributes its torque with a "visco-gear"
      (It's a special silicone gel that stiffens if the relative
      motion (shear) increases)
      VWs 4WD is designed by Steyr-Puch, an Austrian Company and not
      by Audi.
      Originally, all European VWs were carbureted, except those with the "I" or
      "i" and a few rare cases with an "E" for "einspritz", designation which had
      a more powerful fuel injected engine, a "GT" set-up, and some more sporty
      equipment (suspension, gauges).
      In the US, VW switched over to FI around 78, and in Europe a bit later
      (with mono-throttle FI) which meant that all cars really counted as "I"
      models.
      GTI/GLI now just means that the car has a more powerful engine and a
      sportier set-up.
