concidering lambo doors

im seeking out opinions from other camaro owners as to how practical or user friendly they think or have experienced lambo doors to be. it is a everyday car for me, i drive my car 5 days a week to work and around town on the weekends. what do you think the pros and cons to this mod will be? please save all the smart ass coments and pics of hondas with the lambo doors and how tacky you think it might be..... i know its a old ricer mod. just looking for serious input.

thanks for the input...

Lambo doors are so overdone that no even lambo's have them anymore. Although i have seen some on Camaro's that look cool, but IMO is tacky.

I kinda like the way they look, but at the same time I would never do them on my car from a practicality standpoint (mine is a daily driver).

i think they look cool. especially with gfx for that more edgy look. If i get some that opened like a reg door and if i could choose them to go up or not.. i would love that

I have seen the ones that open like normal doors and flip up only when you want to, If that is what floats your boat go for it.

Never liked them on any car other than a lambo. Takes away the muscle car IOM. They do get more looks are car shows but if that is worth 2/3k for you then go for it.

Do it!! You will love it !!! Got mine done a few months ago, never regret it.
Only downside is it takes longer than they suggest to install!!

Lambo doors is not a good idea for an every day car. The hydraulic will wear fast. Most people that get the lambo doors get it for their show cars.

I've done that mod on several different cars, ... every single one needed extensive mods to make then function well ! and if they aren't done with care the end user will hate them.
As far as doing that on a camaro, thats a personal style choice....

If you want the Lambo doors, then do the Lambo doors...your car and your decision. You ask for opinions though, right? OK, heres mine....don't do it! Why on earth would you want to ruin an otherwise perfect car? Like I said though, it's your call. BTW, I'm not an English teacher, but you might want to use your spell-checker before you send your posts.

I'm so glad you asked this man, when I get my car I wanna put them on! They IMO add to this already sexy car. Ok so it might look somewhat ricey but really its your car and you mod it to your liking. Please tell me how the vertical doors inc works out for you because they are on my list to buy from. Oh and post pics of it!!!!!!

If you plan to keep the car do it if you like it. I have a friend who did it to his car along with shaving all the door handles. Eventually he wanted something different and even though the car was low mileage and in great shape (car was less than 5 years old) no one would take it in trade and he couldn't sell it to anyone either. In the end he had to pay to undo it just to get rid of it. So just make sure YOU really want to do it.

If you want to ruin a perfectly good Camaro, then go ahead. As a motorcyclist, I have watched people turn perfectly good motorcycles into unridable pieces of shit so why should your Camaro be any different?

I think they look great personally. If It wasn't for the cost I would definitely get them on my car.

Lambo doors on a Camaro? Ugly. Might want to think about suicide doors. Those would look better.

Here's one taken to the extreme.





Sorry, not a fan. Even the newer Lamborghinis don't have them. If you want the look though, go for it.

Your choice but my opinion is a no. I never was a fan of them on anything else except a lambo. Have seen them on other cars and really never saw a case where it actually made the car look better. Then throw in the loss of money you take for putting them on and the depreciation of the value that comes with them I would use the money elsewhere. With that being said go with your gut. Good Luck

Only the gallardos don't have them.
Most likely he will get Vertical Doors Inc. set that open normally then go up. Nice to have them for a show most car show judges love them
