    Huh? In that case an American car would be continental because it was designed and made in the North American/American continents, one made in China would be continental because it was made in the continents of Asia or Eurasia, one made in Australia would be continental because it was made in the continent of Australia..

    So basically, any car would be continental..

    Continental (usually with capital 'C') is commonly used to refer to European or relating to mainland Europe.

    Is not too difficult with Conti cars too... just that the community is much smaller and comparatively it seems that Jap car mods are more easily available.

    There is also difference in both camps, modded Jap cars are usually readily identifiable from the "loud" external mods. Many have all the external stuff done on them, but with nothing to show underneath. Most of the mods done to the conti cars are under the hood... body kits are most of the time not as "loud" as Jap ones. The reason might be that most of the design of European cars are very refined and do not tolerate heavy external modding. (Adding a big spoiler to the Alfa Romeo will definitely look out of place.)

    Like Volkswagen Golf GTi Edt 30... already factory tuned to 224bhp, but looks relatively standard.

    Maybe european after market tuners respect the original car designer's work... so just only rather subtle bodykit... i.e the japanese after-market tuners just dun care abt the original design... & putting on 'more is better, bigger is better' theory...
