Seen a few lambo door conversions over the years and they have all wobbled about like a limp biscuit when being opened.

I feel like it's 1998 again and I'm reliving my youth as an 18 year old. I thought the lambo door craze had long died out :rofl:

Lambo doors, so cliché that even Lamborghini stopped doing them

Also, Gull-wing doors are from the roof, look at the Mercedes SLS for a modern example. Obviously not something you can do with a convertible

I’d feel like a bit of a Percy parking at Tesco and then opening the door. They need so much room to open up as well They’d get on my nerves.

They also requires lot of chopping and modding of the pillars and front wings. It's a one way trip. Plus if you get boned in the side and the roof is up...fire brigade won't get you out... means chop chop.
