Bi Turbo Diesel Intercooled I guess?

Yes it is. 313 bhp, 650 Nm. 5,7s for 0->100km/h and top 250 km/h with a consumption of only 7,5l/100 km in all comfort. Perfect for my daily routine and 60.000km/y.

Some additional pics of my OSI and a link to wiki:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Officine_Stampaggi_Industriali

A little less than 2200 units were made, most of them were going to the Netherlands and Germany. Stock engines were the Ford 2.0L V6 and Ford 2.3L V6, mine has the 2.6L V6, I think out of the Capri RS. The car goes easily 200km/h, which is a bit of a thrill with rear leaf springs and without safety belts.

GLI is Grand luxury Injection, really a odd name...lol It's basically a GTI with a trunk :) In the states we have GIT/GLI and TDI if i remember correctly

The Jetta GLI, a sedan version of the Golf GTI based on the new Jetta, was revealed at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show with the 2.0 TSI 200 hp engine and a fully independent suspension, as well as the European Jetta's soft touch materials. A black honeycomb grill, aggressive lower intakes, side adorning foglights, smoked taillights, dual tailpipes, red painted calipers, and red stitching are all elements to separate it from its run-of-the-mill counterpart.[127] The GLI, as well as the Jetta TDI, are the only two trims to receive Volkswagen's 6-speed manual transmission as well as the optional 6-speed DSG gearbox.[128] GLI models feature a sport suspension that rides 0.6 inches lower than other Jetta models and the XDS® Cross Differential System.

Not many pics, but i have 

1978 bedford cf

2007 vw caddy

1976 cb750

1991 kh125

Caddy is a bit new for me normally but after 24 years of driving 1940s-1970's vehicles i thought id get something more comfy/reliable for daily work duties. 

 

This is the only pic of any of the above i have to hand.

Fishing for nerds who'd look up Star Wars alphabet?  

Let me take a stab at it, "don't live the empire?"  hmm... my Aurebesh is rusty...

Did you buy the Jetta because of the name of the car?

I like that sticker too!  Since I haven't seen that sticker, I've got a long way to go on the ways of the Nerdi.

You don't see many of these any more - so I had to get this one which is in original condition and very clean for its age.

really nice to see a 323, not a fan of the compact BMW serie 3, but my friend had a imported from germany Compact 316i, with only 106.000km, that was last year when he sold it. I can imagine what difference the motor makes, really a nice car in so good condition.

the skyline behing also yours? :)

Yes it's my GT-R. I also have an Evo 6 RS2 - go back a few pages for pics of it and a few of the other vehicles I've owned in the past.

I’ve never been a huge convertible car guy as I rarely even open the sunroofs on my cars. However last year I spent three weeks with a rental Mustang convertible and loved it. I’ve been looking for about 6 months and I recently came across this 2002 Porsche Carerra 4 cabriolet.  It’s in really nice condition for a 17 year old car.

I’ve been spending a lot of time restoring it from years of neglect.  Sanded the oxidation off the the front headlights 

9186C620-0C6B-43C4-913E-2D4B46845054_zps

Then polished them back clear with successively finer sand papers and polishing creme.

Ran a clay bar over all the paint to pull out the impurities and waxed it up. 

575F5A24-3FF5-4157-B336-98106D3E118A_zps

Scrubbed out all the pebble grain surfaces of the interior panels with detergent and a soft tooth brush.  I used Lexol products to clean and condition the leather.
