hi guys, i need ur opinions...
i am thinking about converting my gti's doors, to lambo doors

1) do u think it would be cool, especially with the problem that i have a 5-door gti, that
means the doors are shorter, would it look nice ???

2)how much do u know it costs fot 2 doors ???

what's your advice?

Please don't do that. Trade your GTI for a honda civic, then you can do that. if you need to know why you shouldn't do that I recommend going to this website: Laugh at Rice

LSD Lambo Doors
...well considering a lambo isnt a ricer getting lambo doors is not exactly ricing up yer car. my opinion for the cost they will be its not worth it. it said like 1,600 something bucks on that site i posted above. also they only have it for the 2 door. maybe if you contact them though and tell them you only want it for 2 doors it will be fine.

You're right. Owning a Lamborghini and having gull wing doors is not Rice. Owning a Civic and having Gull Wing doors, however, is Rice. Owning a VW with gull wing doors is also Rice, but with an odd German aftertaste. To make my point: there is a beautiful new Civic SI for sale in Newark New Jersey with "Lambo" doors. ::)

While I can see the utility of the lambo doors since the stock doors are stupid long and difficult to work in tight parking lots, I think lambo doors are for lambos, gull wings are for gull wings, suicide doors are for lincolns, and the rest get doors. Your intentions may be good, and I certainly applaud you for wanting to better your GTI, but I gotta level with you - when they look at your car, most people are going to see an understated, beautiful german design that was tweaked too hard.

As an aside, if you go that route and spend that kind of dough on doors, people (including me) will expect you to have the engine to back it up.

They are owned by Audi, which is owned by VW, of which Porsche is a major stakeholder.

Re: LAMBO doors fot GTI

i have no problems changing the doors. just no gigantic wings PLEASE!... or neon glow under the car... too much too much... the only neon glow i would get is when its in the engine and shines out the grille >:D i like how that looks. makes yer car look like the engine is alive hah... i doubt i would spend the money though for something like that... but it would look nice.

Yeah, what was Audi thinking putting "normal" doors on a LAMBORGHINI, the reason lambo's are so great is because they're so insane. I wouldn't ever buy a Gallardo JUST for the fact that it doesn't have lambo doors they do seem to be pretty popular though. when im a billionaire, and mark my words i will be, im buying myself the LP640 roadster, that is all that is car, im in love with it

I drove a Gallardo last Friday the 22nd, and everything in it either looked like my 2001 A6, or my 2002 GTi... kinda strange. Everything on the inside is totally worth $20k, the motor however is the jewel of the package!

(Terrible stability system though... almost un-drivable)

Sorry, we now return to our regularly scheduled thread...

I'm having a hard time believing that anyone would get Lambo-style doors on their GTI because it's more practical in tight parking lots. I can see the merit of the argument when trying to convince your wife it's a worthwhile investment, but seriously; I consider it far more PRACTICAL to save the $1600+ and simply be careful when opening my door next to a Civic at Best Buy. Several people, though, have commented on how great, neat, sick, badass it looks. If that's your bag, go for it. For my money, I'll have to pass on the Lambo-style and keep my GTI-style doors. Put that extra money into my GTI-suspension, GTI intake, GTI motor, and GTI exhaust.

For North America, I agree. For Europe, I can see their point. Not that I could justify the $1600. Too many other places I'd spend it first.

Oh my goodnes don't do lambo doors on a GTI it would look hideous and wreck a perfectly good car, not to mention you could be spending that money on intake, exhaust, stereo........useful stuff.......just my opinion do what u want :)
