I am thrilled to receive a comment for you(The father of contessa modding)
Waiting to get more Vitamin M for the alloys can you please tell me what is the exact PCD of the contess is it 120 or is it 120.5??
Thanks

Im concerned of the practicality of driving the car without a bumper. Wouldnt want to damage that paint job.

Wow this looks very close to what i would like....Imagine a small slanted font on the same grill with contessa or vauxhall written.Also a small chrome partition at the centre would give it a nice look too...

Wow, the last one is a neat job, Lohith.

Sparsh, if nothing else, atleast get bigger fog lights.

@lohithrao The last one is awesome.

@Progamersparsh Look at the front design,if you can change that to this,that would be awesome.

Also could you check whether you can put bigger fog lamps as amitoj already suggested.

Smile Nice looking car

Hi Sparsh,
I have been following the thread for a while now and wow - hats off to you for bringing out such a lovely car back to life. It looks good infact from some angles, it is awesome.

For sure alloys and fatter tyres would do wonders but I understand the Vitamin M part - now that it is back to life, you can work on the other things as and when time and Vitamins permit.

I wouldn't say I hate the rear spoiler, maybe the photos aren't doing justice but you can look into options and coming to the front end, I really liked the last pic by Lohit - I am sure that would look awesome in real too. Think about it.

All said, you already are a winner to have invested the time and money on this machine which I am sure is more than just special for you now and you may take everbodies two cents but at the end make sure you make it look the way YOU WANT IT TO LOOK LIKE.

Great job once again. Will keep following this thread and check for the further changes.

Now I must show this thread to my uncle who has been owning a conti for a while now which actually was handed over to him by his friend since it wasn't in use and it is in a pathetic condition and I always pity its state, nevertheless its always moving and performing its job.

Its 120.5, if you got friends in chennai ask them to look out for bimmer 5/7 series rims, they fit directly, I had used the steel rims 15' on my car.

Can anyone please confirm if i can fit in 15" Mahindra XYLO wheels as their PCD is 120..I understand that there is a .5 difference but then again its the closest bet.I got a person sellin old BMW wheels but the design is not appealing enough!!
