    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the GTI badges, when one has GTI wrote in silver and the other has a red I instead of silver.

    when they first came out, it was the difference between the 150 and 180 hp version. Then the 180's came with silver badges later on.

    Basically, nowadays it means ****** all - as most people have fitted a red badge out of badge envy ;)

    The red "i" was originally the turbo version 150bhp.
    The red T on a 1.8T A3 was the 180bhp engine, i.e. the quattro

    I think Rallye Sport was the Ford RS range, like the old RS Turbos etc IIRC???

    Seem to remember that being related to them.....
