Just be aware that if you source them overseas you will likely need to add import duty.
Easily overlooked.


Take it you tried the likes of ebay, amazon, Pistonheads and the other car websites?


There's a few here who have fitted them, but I can't recall more than one in the UK.
I think they were at a recent meet. I wasn't there, but @dbgrn might have been, Dave?
They might be able to give some tips for sourcing and fitting.

Sorry, no, I've never seen any lambo style doors on an SLK in person - and if there were some at a recent UK meet, I'm afraid I don't know where they were either.

If I spot it on my travels I'll post a mention here.


Maybe it's an upcoming event.
I think it is either their profile avatar, or signature that shows the doors open.

I would say that a 'used' ld would possibly been 'adjusted' from 'normal' and not worth the time or effort. Just my opinion.
Notice, I don't have any ld or gull wings

Not sure where I read this but I did read about bolt on hinges that are similar to the SLR doors. I am also look for some to install on mine as well.

I think Eeyorewolf signature is an r171 with Lambo doors. Pretty cool. I looked into it, think the company that makes the hinges for the mod is Houston based. I think they cost $1000-$1200. If you buy them in Houston they will install them for free if i remember correctly.

Not used them myself but apparently these guys can do the conversion for you. They look like it would be even harder for me to get in and out of the car .

I'd like to see an SLK door sliding into it's front fender like a Kaiser Darren, that would be a neat trick. Beautiful body style for early 50's. Have you ever seen an early 90's BMW Z1? Really unusual doors. Can't imagine doing 150mph with the doors down. What a rush.

I think the door kits allow the doors to be opened normally or Lambo style. Kind of defeats the purpose though. To me the Lambo doors look much better on the AMG's(55's), with the ground effects it makes it look like a super car( which it almost is).

Yeah I think once the novelty had worn off, I'd revert to using the normal opening again anyway. I think I'll give them a miss and perhaps go for the illuminated sills instead.

BTW, has anyone else's car not got any door lights installed? Mine doesn't even seem to have a location where they could be fitted. You would think something like that would be standard equipment on every model at the very least.

That's the hinges I was considering. You have the best of both worlds. Open them normally or Lambo style just like the SLR. I think they open 2 feet normally before they go up. Which is great if you park in an underground parking lot with a cement post beside it. Or if the parking spots are to close together where you can't raise them.
