Opinions on Butterfly Doors Project

Hi people,

Considering this as an add on:
Chevrolet Cobalt Vertical Lambo Doors Bolt On 05 06 07 08 09 10

Im a total greenhorn on this, so thats why Im asking for opinions. I hate modifying cars, but might stomach this since they claim NO welding/drilling. Also, has anyone ever bought from these people?

Secondary reason for these doors is the space required to open my door sometimes is sooooo cramped in parking spaces cuz of so many incompetent/untrained/insufficiently trained drivers out there. I mean, its not like they had to take their drivers test in a European country or something of the like where one really has to study to pass a test.

I understand that the doors will not go straight up like the $4000 mod jobs out there. They will probably first swing out a tad (1' ?) then swing straight up. Thats my hope.

Comments appreciated before I buy the stuff.

for the price, I'd doubt they're really bolt on despite the claims. however, it does look appetizing enough to try. worst case, re-list on ebay. they go for more there.

If it's what you like, then go for it, but I think most feel them to be too played out now. Rice imho
