lambo doors

last year in germany there was a company who modded bmw's. Are you looking for the gull wing door as they specialise in the "flip up door convertion?"

We're still waiting for an introduction, but I've already done the research. I've done gullwings but I've never done this and it doesn't look simple or cheap.

I know nothing about this so I can't contribute?

Point?

And if you read my posts you would realize I never said you didn't contribute anything, all I said was you carry an elitest attitude and you try to act badass.

Thanks BUD.

But you remain a name caller who has posted in two threads now offering no help to the people who asked questions. As a matter of fact I just checked all of your posts and so far your record shows that you have contributed exactly zero to these forums. I'm not here to be nice or to be liked as you seem to want to be. When you have made 1% of the useful contributions to this forum I have, come back and give me your opinion. Until then go piss up a rope.

Vertical doors for beamers are hard to find and I heard a big hassle to install. I'd suggest going to Google.com and looking up your make and model +Vertical Door kits, Lambo Doors, etc. Hope I was of help.

Sorry, that I don't spend all day browsing through this forum looking for more answers to goive out. I have to pick and choose while on breaks here at work. And this isn't the only forum I spend time at. Some days, i dont' get to come here at all, due to actually having a life.

Here's some "shocks" for the conversion if you wanted to try and invent it yourself:
