ameet_pv That's a beautiful Conty you have. Please post some snaps of the engine bay & Dash board for reference. 20th April 2011
mycarhasablower Very few contis have the good fortune of a caring owner, yours is lucky, dont let go of her. I just bought one 3 months back , will restore it to factory specs .will be starting a conti owners club in delhi soon, one in bangalore may also start soon. wish there was one in mumbai too and then with the numbers(number of conti owners) on our side we could do something abt the spare parts problem. 29th August 2010

salilpawar1 I saw your car at Worli a few days ago.
How about painting Bridgestone in white on the tyres?
Also paint BACK OFF on the mudflaps. Looks cool!

planet_rocker aditya - hows the work going on? restoration complete? were you able to source the parts you were looking for? keep us updated. 19th May 2008
kavesh55 Cool machine man. liked the indicators in the front though. 21st November 2007
Aditya I get between 7 and 9kpl in the city depending on the use of the AC. 60K is too steep for a Conti. If the car's in great shape, 40 - 45K. 17th October 2007
route666 aditya i got an offer for 60k for this same you think it's worth it. and how much does she drinks. 17th October 2007
Aditya Yes sfilinto. I've done that many times. Twice with Team-BHP members. 15th October 2007

yogesh sarkar Always loved the way Contessa looks, rough and ready to start a brawl 4th July 2006
Boom Shiva Hey bro, nice car. Conty was the first car I ever had...a real beast. 23rd April 2006
Deeps Aditya, a review is the least that this car deserves! 24th March 2006
Aditya Thanks Sinner. The car's certainly not as quick as it was, but, still manages to cross 140km/h. It cruises at 120km/h in a very relaxed manner. 23rd March 2006
sinner Ahhh so someone at Team BHp also owns the orignal and the only indian Muscel car... nice man,, howz the performance now 23rd March 2006
Aditya Ram, this car was built in 1996. I have it since December 2000. 12th February 2006

kkanishka buddy i am working on mine will post the pics and performance details soon 1st February 2006

monster tunes good stuff i also having one with lot of modifications 26th January 2006
Aditya Right Rtech, needs more muscle and better quality. 14th December 2005
Rtech The quintessential Indian muscle car! Just need more muscle ;) 12th December 2005
devarshi84 ever thought of giving it alloys with spinner???? I once had this Idea to modify a conti. Wasnt able to do it though. 12th December 2005
Aditya This car came with twin headlamps as standard fitting. HM got rid of the rectangular headlamps in 1996 because they were too weak. 10th December 2005
Steeroid I think the Conti looks best with the rectangular headlamps - did you get yours changed, because I thought the twin lamps were a diesel special>< 10th December 2005
falcon Nice!!! How about some snaps of the interiors. 8th December 2005
aah78 aahh, the contessa. always a hot favourite. addy, beef it up a little, buddy. 3rd December 2005
