    Default Are Lambo doors legal in Mass?

    Hi everyone,

    I been searching the web and can't find an answer to this. Does anyone know whether or not Lambo doors are legal in Massachusetts.
    I checked the motor vehicle website with no success.

    I don't know if I would get them but i'd like to know if i should even think about it thanks

    Well i never heard of them being illegal. If they were illegal it would be the fact you modifying the cars door for other then keeping you in the car. But kits now a days already address this and offer the same if not better safety to the car. But for the most part I've never heard of them being illegal so i think your safe. I'm not a big fan of them and there starting to be over played. I like seeing them every once in a while at a show on a car that fits the use of a lambo kit but for the most part its starting to get old.

    I like them but i know what you mean. Luckily in my area they aren't common place. But I know my luck if i were to get them then I'll start seeing them everywhere.
    I was curious about the legality in Mass because this state has restrictions on things that may seem normal other places. And thats why i'm asking here because I can't seem to find anything to the contrary

    Thanks

    Well, simply way to find out, is walk in to your local police department and ask, if not, try asking at your local library. Plus it'll make the librarians feel useful for a change.

    That was the best ricer demotivator ever.


    They are legal in every state from what I recall. Your best bet for if you live in a state with safety/emissions checks is to call the place that does your checks and ask them. If they say there isn't a law, then you're in the clear.


    Now, are they tasteful or cool? That's your call, but I vote no. That picture sums it up though. I haven't seen vertical doors on a car since a Countach or something of those lines. Civics are about it, because its a ricer mobile.

    Tommy's 5th gen pulls off lambo doors pretty well.

    He's one of the very few cars I've seen with aftermarket lambo doors that I've liked though.

    As far as I know there aren't many laws regarding the conversion since it's only a hinge being changed, The locking mechanisms all stay the same. IF you change any of that then you will have to go through a state certified safety inspection.

    Adversely Suicide doors have a lot of laws regarding them. (Atleast in PA) Where you need to add a deadbolt locking the door to the frame / Fender aprons. And a few safety releases.

    It's a bad idea imho, They are a nightmare to deal with especially on a daily basis. You're driver side hinge is going to wear out before the passenger side. (obviously you'll use it more) Most kits aren't made from good quality billet, They are cheaply cast . Most likely from Chinese metals. Resulting in premature sag/ Hinge fatigue. If you leave OEM hinges alone they will usually outlast the life of the car.

    Once your doors start to sag you'll end up gaining weird air and water leaks around your door seams. Whistling at highway speeds. floorboard rust from settling moisture under the carpets and insulation.

    Using them is just a pain in the ass also, it only takes one light wind gust to yank your door wile it's up to bend the hinge. I can't tell you how many I've fixed for friends.

    End of story it's all your decision. They can be done well and look nice if thats your thing. They also have a lot of drawbacks and take a great deal of care for longevity and installation. So just make sure you've thought it out from all angles before you take a step ahead.

    Good luck!

    They should be illegal...based on how lame they are. That would get very annoying very quickly.

    I hope you realize geebes that you are able to open the door regularly even with the mechanism installed.

    Yeah, but then what would be the point of having them at all? Which proves my point that they are lame.

    ^ DMC doors arent suicide, suicide are doors that open backwards

    Well one point would be if you got them for show, but dont like to open them like that all the time. Im not defending them because they are overly played out, but just giving an instance
