Re: Is a GTi still a Rabbit? (JetTAFLiTe)

Ok I know this sounds strange, but my friend is looking for a car, and he said he came accross a '97 Rabbit golf. I didn't believe him, and I figured because he doesn't know much about VWs that it was a golf, but he insisted it was a Rabbit. He said the manual said rabbit on it. Were there any specail edditions I don't know about or something? or did this guy just have a rabbit manual in his golf or something? I was quite puzzled by that one.

That guy is lying and he's not really your friend. Be wary of those types 8vGTIGuy!!

Thank you for your replys and have a nice day. My GTi is a GTi and not a Rabbit and my GTi can be a Golf GTi but not a Rabbit. No Rabbit....

Re: Is a GTi still a Rabbit? (Majik6)


um, in new england there are tons and tons of rabbits... non gti's....
are you saying there were only rabbits in 83-84? the rest of the mkI's were golfs?
if so, that's not true at all.
the first rabbit in the states was in 77. they were available in 4dr and 2dr, and gti...

edit* wait, nevermind. i get it now...

Well, since they were called golfs overseas and NOT rabbits, they are still golfs and GTIs...like we have now.

I am pretty sure Austria used the Rabbit badging for some time, even on Mk III cars. I think on the newer ones they might still use the moniker or the little emblem.
