What does GTI stand for?
« on: February 02, 2006, 01:15:20 PM »
My english professor had us do a little in class, internet search engine project. One of the things he had look for was what GTI meant. He said it meant Good Times Inside??

BAM!

"Grand Touring Injection"

I think Jon got it, we'll go ahead and accept that answer.

It's either that or "Gateway Transaction Interface" .... or maybe "Grounded Theory Institute"... :lol:

Actually I like the Urban Dictionary definition the best:

Volkswagen's sexy ass, high performance hatchback. The ricers' worst nightmare. Stands for "Grand Touring Injection," but also can stand for "Get Turbo, Idiot" as you whiz by a Honda Civic.

Andrew, if it is your anniversary, and you don't have something yet...YOU BETTER get her something nice ;)  I say, get her the X5, although many have complained that the interior room is not great, but then again, how much better is the Cayanne?  Then just give me the 330 :)...as a nice house warming gift, hehe.

If you're just now realizing this, you're headed up the creek without a paddle.  You better hop to it there buddy.  Its 1:30 already and there's not much time left to get a nice dinner and gift planned.   :wink:

Not worried, it is all comming toghether.  Actually, things have been planned for a while.  Kids have a baby sitter for the night.  Dinner is planned with reservations and all. (suit is even ready at the drycleaners, I just have to pick it up on the way home.)  no car for a present this year.  We agreed a couple of weeks ago to skip small gifts for each other and to buy a new dining set for the kitchen to replace our current table and chairs.  Since that is going to make the wallet about $2K lighter, I figure picking up some flowers on the way home should keep me out of the dog house.

 :D

its all good.

i get sick of house mods though. Our last house mod (3 months ago) was to get an antique 1840's upright paino restored and retuned. While it looks great, i still don't know how to play a piano. Atleast she enjoys it though.
