I'm a pretty simple kind of guy, i'm happy to just de-lock and de-handle the standard doors.

Door conversions never seem to be as good as the original, and call me paranoid, but when i close my door I want to know it's gonna stay closed.

That pretty close to what i've heard. Most require cutting away of the inside wing, wing removal and a respray so that is where the cost ads up.

Its HGS:-Head gasket syndrome : part = £2.50 fitting = £300!

Lambo doors all the way! :D But they are actually more practical than normal doors. Ever had a moment in the car park where you didn't leave yourself enough space to open the door enough without hitting another car. Thats where lambo doors are by far the winners
:!: :!: :D

Just climb otu of your window. This way you dont open your door onto anything. Guys please note; be careful of your man bits on the door lock pin if you have them. They rip your jeans and bring tears to your eyes. :oops: :lol:

I have to admit that I usually park diagonally across 2 spaces and open the doors. That way no one opens teir door onto my car. And also, it is not as easy as it looks to get through those windows. I had to re-spray the drivrs door top last year cos I scratched it too :oops: .

Lambo doors look nice, but i do prefer the ordinary doors, easier to get in and out and never thought about them hitting the roof of other cars....lol

well most of the multi story car parks have really low roof's in redditch for some reason, so theirs always some little boy racer going aroung with the top corner or their door all dinged up from wear it hit the roof lol, i tend to find it quite funny lol :lol:

Don't think I've ever seen a suicide Lambo - that would be cool!

This is an email they sent me about suicide lamo doors.
There are no kits for suicide Lambo doors. These have to be constructed on a one-off basis at considerable cost. We have done a couple for other
companies, but to be honest both cost around £4000-£5000 all in. We might be able to do them a spot cheaper now we know how to do them, but the labour is considerable.

surely if you were to have doors like that the back and front would hit each other if you opened both front and back together, :?
also wouldnt you need to remove the center post to have suicide doors as the rx8 does not have one, to make it work properly

I voted scissor doors because they are awesome, I could probably afford to install them on my 206 but without an over the top body kit I don't think it would look good. I really hate Suicide doors though... they look terrible!
