Who's got Lambo's then ?

I'm almost there with the VDI door kit purchase.
But would really like to see them 'Live'.

Who in the UK has them fitted to their Camaro5 ?

Is it you? If so, I'm coming to drink your tea and eat your cake :-)

RSVP w Location please.
I'm in Leeds, often go to London Chelsea area.

Thanks :-)

Red, Please NO!! If you do go ahead, make sure you have enough ceiling height in your garage to open them....or you'll have an hilarious tale to tell of how the corner of your expensive door ended up embeded 6 inches in plasterboard.

I was about to buy the VDI kit, but with Christmas coming up I'm going to wait until after the holidays.

With regards to the look, I've always been on the fence about it. The functionality over here with the tiny parking spots would be invaluable. It's rare I take my car anywhere parking would be tight, but it's unavoidable occasionally. Last time I went to Cambridge I ended up taking a handicap spot and risked the ticket. Any other spot and I couldn't get out of the car.

Your right about our bloody tight parking spaces. I've been forced to get in my car from the passenger side once, when someone parked within their space, but allowed no more than a foot between our cars. I am always in awe of American spaces, some of which have double spacer lines, with at least 3 feet of clear space. You'll have noticed that UK authorities don't really like cars, I bet.
However, I still wouldn't add Lambo doors to our iconic motors. It'd be like having an 80s Don Johnson mullet, with your sleeves rolled up on your jacket.

Got Lambo's on mine, but like zkdreads mentions, you would not know as you can get in and out comfortably without having them go up.

A part of me does concur with your statement.

I've been staying off the boards lately. Money has become scarce for me, so lots of car plans have been put on hold. I've cut back to my other main hobby, beer (brewing, collecting, drinking).

Of course! I'm a huge fan of the Peterborough local, Oakham Ales. I try and get to The Brewery Tap whenever I can for lunch. The food there is pretty good too.
