Hi guys, first time posting (indeed visiting) in a while, but doing so for the delicious purpose of discussing badge nomenclature.

Does the "tii" in BMW's 1 series tii concept (branded in tribute to the 2002 tii) stand for "twin inducted (fuel) injected"? or "Tourismo Internationale, injected"? I'm getting my info from this thread: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=463733

I'd love to get the opinion of the final gear crowd.

Thanks!

I was inclined to agree that this is what it stood for originally for the 1975 car, but was unsure about the concept. Subsequently, I did pose the same question on twitter and @BMWgroup responded with:
@autokinesis Your first assumption is correct: turismo internationale.

Since they didn't specify, I think I'll accept it as an answer for both models.
