That's one way, I also have a switch where I can override the door pins....problem with that is that my retained accessory power won't shut off until the door opens, so sometimes I get stuck in a conundrum and my battery runs down. Ideally I would add a timer to shut off the light automatically. New cars have that built in.

I am really torn on getting lambo doors or keeping them stock.... so a question for the long timeusers:

Would you do it over again? Would you do anything different? How is it getting in and out of the car? Any issues in parking structures?

From one Tony to Another hehehe,..

Hey Tony, First i have to ask, is the car your daily driver ?

For some it might be a bit much to deal with on a daily basis, but for me personally the EXTREME WOW factor outwieghs any slight extra effort needed getting in and out.

When i first got the doors it was vvery easy open and close, except closing inside from a sitting position was difficult, i had to pull them down before i got in then close normally while sitting.

After about a month that went away, i don't know whether they loosened up or i got really stronger ? Eh,... probably got looser cause my biceps look the same hehehe.
Please don't listen to those who say lambo doors are played out !!

People go crazy when they see the doors,..period ! It absolutely takes your car to another level. Tony having seen your car in person, i highly recommend it. It would totally
put it over the top. IMO go for it !

Tony (topcat) you'll like the lambo doors (I'm baias). Like Tony (exoticse) said you'll get alot of the wow factor. A small down fall is the door will not swing open as far, but you shouldn't have much of a problem because your not a large person. It seemed to happen on both my fieros that after a while the door got easier to open and close ( going up and down ).

I have a set of four. Does that tell you anything, hehe. My advice it to stay physically fit, especially around the mid section and do some weight lifting (but that's GP for all Fiero owners, right). As for parking- there isn't any I can think of. Keep in mind- the VDC kits add 30 pounds to the Fiero and adds 30 more people viewing your car every time the doors are up. The colder the weather- the less effective are the struts. i wouldn't recommending them if you live in areas that are 35 degrees or less. If you don't want the attention- you can keep the doors down provided your in shape and don't have after market seats. Due to the high bolsters in after market and in some cases newer seats- the increase the difficultly level. Stick to the known brands that work and not the ones on the internet that claim there 100% bolt-on kits. There's a person here on the forum that makes them and they seem to work pretty well. If not, VDC or Decah are the ones to get, but you'll need them modified to fit the Fiero. Therefore the person here on the forum seem to be the better route and cheaper.

Unless I'm showing off, I normally I just get in and out without raising the doors. I find that to be quite easy. The clearance needed is actually less than stck hinges. If I'm at a gas station or some other spot I try not to attract too much attention.

But if a crowd does form I flip up the door and the crowd goes wild.

Thanks fro all the replies. I had to leave town on short notice. My wife saw them on another Fiero while at Daytona and liked them. I've always liked them, but leery as already stated.

Tony, my car is not a daily driver - in fact it saw less than a hundred miles for the past couple of years. The drive to Daytona is the most that she has been driven in the past several years.


The effect on the struts in colder weather is the sort of info that is most vaulable - but being here in SC does not really make it much of a concern as we are typically above that temp for 10 months out of the year

Okay, so I know the next direction I will take Velvet.

Thanks again.
