Used to own a 2002 Jetta TDI - Black/Black
Would like to see a short article with pics on how to definitively spot a TDI by model and possibly year(s). For example, I have no idea how to spot a TDI bug. I think the 2002 and 2003's are easily spotted for Jetta's and Golf's and maybe Passat's, but I have no idea where to look for anything on a bug.

Make it a sticky also.

... None :S
TDI Buggys didn't get any badges to reflect their engine. The only sure way to know is to look at the tach. (5k redline vs 7k on the gas engines)

All TDI Golfs, Jettas, and Passats are badged TDI on the trunk / hatch.

Hi Newbee here. Been lurking since July, learning every day. I bought a used 1998 TDI beetle and love it. It had 110,000 miles when I got it. Now at 126,000. It does have a TDI emblem on it.
