Default Lambo Doors ??? Good idea or not

I see a vendor has a lambo door kit for $400, has anyone installed the extreme lambo kit? Is this a mod you would do again? Is install as easy as they claim?


thanks

$400 for a door kit that's WAYYYYYY cheap..... it may not be the best quality. LSD's kit I believe was around 2 or 3 grand....... If the kit is in fact $400... you might not be getting the best quality.

Gaudy. Like flashing your new gold tooth..-Pimp.

If "magic" lambo doors were offered to me for FREE I'd still pass.

The regular price is $1100 on for $400 this month only. I personally think they look kind of cool, not sure though how well they function. Just thinking about it right now, I really dont know much about these and the Pro's and Con's. The sales price peaked my interest.

What I find amusing is that on the forum there are plenty of lambo haters, yet customizing is just that. At car shows cars with lambo's etc get way more spectators than any other vette with the exception of the new zr1. I have them and some friends do and people go crazy over them and if you show your car go for it. I do think you should investigate the metal etc. I paid much more for vertical doors inc and friends for LSD and they seem to be the best made. Ultimately it is your car make it the way you like it IMO.

That pic is useless since Gallardo's don't come with scissor doors but all the other Lambo's do.

good post offering direction and opinion... but I do feel that mods on the cars do make the vette however the lambo doors are call that I dont believe any other supercar has them besides the lambo. Its almost as if the ole saying goes square peg square hole...

$400 is cheaper than I've heard, so I'd be suspicious. I'd never install them on my car because they serve no legitimate purpose in my mind. That's my opinion, and beside the point. I'd proceed with caution.

They are very gay. They belong on Lambos and on Vin Diesels cars.

I think they are just fine. If you want lambo doors then put them on. Don't listen to the haters. If I'm sitting next to my exact duplicate car at a show but he has lambo doors, he's getting the looks! TRUTH!

I have them on mine. I have a few friends that have them also. DO NOT BUY A $400 KIT!!! you will have problems. I had a friend buy that kit on ebay and had nothing but trouble. I installed the dream car custom kit, and truly feel its the best kit. With this kit you DO NOT cut on your car. Every other kit has too trim the fenders.

Just like said before, when you go to a car show, you will be the center of attention! Get ready to be asked a million questions!!!
