    Default STI or GTI

    What is the difference (in spec) between 505 STI and GTI 91 model wagons?

    STIs finished in 1985 (and weren't available as wagon) and GTI finished in 1989.
    The late wagons were simply called wagons but did have the unleaded GTi engine.

    Call me simple Graham, but there are two 91 model 505 wagons for sale on AF. One is a GTI and the other is a STI. Are thy both the same?

    Yes and neither STi nor GTi
    Also, the GTi wagons were all 5 speed manual.

    Assuming they are both actually 1991 models, there will be no difference in spec between the two cars advertised at the moment here.

    The silver one with the GTi badge I would definately say is 'stuck on', partly because it is in the wrong spot and partly because it looks like the whole car has been resprayed - also given away by the lack of door bump strips.

    The dark blue one I can't see the back of the car, but by that year there were no GTi wagons available, and as Graham said, they were all manual anyway.

    The only option on these two cars apart from colours would have been electric mirrors.

    Interestingly I had the registration knocked back on a late wagon because the mirrors weren't connected up.
    Tried to tell the inspector that that was the way they were sold but no success.

    That seems strange. If it was supposed to be non-electric mirrors, were the manual handles inside intact and working ok?

    No manual handles and still had buttons on front of armrests.
