Hi Vikid, that is a nice Padmini you have here. Are the wheels of different colours on each side? The exhaust looks pretty menacing. What mods do you have in there?

And why don't you post an intro?

@ PDG - if you see carefully - the tailpipe looks stock till the after-market exhaust tip. but it surely looks "ok" (the tip actually looks out of place)

the post should have been mabe in this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...0-awesome.html

You really think so? I only found the bumpers out of place. Quite liked the look of the tail pipe. But you are right, it is an add on tip.

However, I really think these few posts belong in a new thread.

Great to hear that Vikid, and do keep posting about the further mods. You will find Fiat lovers in hordes here. Just delve and you will come across a lot of info on modded Fiats. There are some purists as well.

What was the rationale behind using the electronic distributor from the contessa. Is the intitial timing, the part-throttle and the WOT timing in sync with the best values.
Whats the dwell angle?

I am not criticising, but trying to understand. This might be a pointer to many of us.
