    im thinking of suiciding my rear doors , they are quite hard by what iv seen you have to get the right hinges and fit them on the opposite side of the door then fit the catch to the opposite side too but the finished result is much better than gull wing or scissors.

    Don't forget any electric cables for central locking/windows/speakers!
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    never on a bmw no no no lol

    i had some on a honda civic and as long as you keep them adjusted they will work perfect make sure they are the best quality brackets u can find tho else u will regret it.. swaying in the wind, flimsy, just awful unless u got really good brackets

    DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!
    I have a Compact and would love to see what the car looks like with lambo doors. Ive seen kits for around £800 but dont know what else is involved with fitting them.

    Like A20 Rym said....''If you like it then DO IT and don't listen to anyone who told you that you did the wrong thing!''

    I had lambo doors on my old rover was going a bit mad with modding it when i done them they had never been done to a rover. They were good to look at but a pain in the arse for evey day use.
