that looks just like satoshi's decah kit, its almost exactly the same. 500$ is a good price...considering no one wants to pay 2000$ for the same thing. I would get it

that's a sweet price buy 3 and if one breaks replace it.. since it'd cost you 1500 dollars for a decah or other name brand set. let us know how it works out and such if you do end up gettin 'em. it always seemed to me that paying 1500 dollars for a freaking hinge was rediculous since the materials are probably about 10-40 dollars total.

i wouldn't buy it.

i just got back from WOW (world of wheels) new orleans and they had an accord in the import tuner booth with lambo doors...they driver's side door kept falling down every hour or two (bad shock) rofl rofl

i talked to the owner, he said it's a no-name brand one off of ebay.

this is a pic of his car, if it makes a difference:

so if its more for everyday adn you dont need them up for hours it may be good. Personally i want them for 1. looks and 2. becasue the parking is such crap here at UF, that the spaces are to small to open your door. I have had to climb out the hatch before.

oh yeah..his passenger door had trouble closing too..you practically had to lift it up and slam it hard to get it to stay shut. the driver door (the one with the bad shock) was fine closing though.

and as far as parking is concerned..you still need to open the doors up to 15 degress and THEN raise it. if you can't open your door and get out normally..it'll be the same with the lambo doors..you won't be able to open it enough to pick it up.

^^ lol, that might work thumbsup

i was just saying that you still have to open them up before you lift them up. if you have no room to open your doors int the first place, then lambo doors won't do you any good.

Evenone I know with lambo doors hates em. Yea, it looks hot, but they're a pain in the ass. Two of my friends busted their skirts cause the door dropped too far.

i have emailed a majority of the people who have gotten lambo doors from ebay, 95% of them said they were just as good as namebrands, like 3 out of 30 people told me that they just upgraded the shocks and bang it was just like a DECAH kit, but then again, with ebay stuff you just never know!!

where do you get new shocks? Wonder if any hinge modification is necessary?? or is a tru bolt on kit. Thats a good price if it all works. unless new shocks are allot of money.
