Title: What does GTI stand for?
Post by: copassatguy on February 02, 2006, 08:15:20 AM
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??

Grand Touring Injected?
Great Tan Interior?
Get Tossed Insided?
Gobstopper Testing International?
Gonad Twittering Intensive?

Actually, I have no idea, just making up crap....passing the time of day before I go to the walk through of my house in less than 2 hours.[/i]

BAM! (http://www.abbreviationz.com/b1.asp?KEY=57680)

"Grand Touring Injection"

I think Jon got it, we'll go ahead and accept that answer (http://asuaf.org/~thatoneguy/cookie.jpg).

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

Actually I like the Urban Dictionary definition (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gti) the best:
Quote

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.
Mah GTI is bettah than yo rice bowl on fo wheels, foo!

The original MK I GTI Was developed for VW by an Italian. It stands for Grand Tourismo Injezzioni or in english, Grand Touring Injected.

you should have bought here a VW first before jumping to the BMW, now your screwed.. I am taking small steps, that way we can 'hopefully' afford future steps.

Wow, from a Saturn to a BMW.  I wouldnt settle for anything less from now on if I was her.  You're bent on that one there.   :x

yeah guys, I am definately screwed.  will be interesting to see what I need to buy next.  I think she wants an X5.  maybe I can talk her back over to VAG with a Q7 or at least a Cayanne. ugh!  And to think, today is our Anniversary.  I should probably get her something, right?
Title: Re: What does GTI stand for?
Post by: 03Indigo on February 03, 2006, 12:14:23 PM
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:
Title: Re: What does GTI stand for?
Post by: gragravar on February 03, 2006, 01:04:48 PM
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.

What does GLI stand for? Gran Luxe Iniezione (Grand Luxury Injected)

Since we're on the topic of acronyms, what the hell does ICE stand for, besides in case of emergency?  I know it refers to stereo equipment...I guess I'm too old for that youthful jibber-jabber.
Title: Re: What does GTI stand for?
Post by: BHase on February 03, 2006, 10:01:15 PM
I'm guessing here it refers to "ICE" in the hip-hop sense, you know "platinum, ice and gold" (usually diamonds).  So you know, cosmetic upgrades.

Unless you're thinking about converting your car to the German fast-train of the same name (Inter-City Express).
