From a show car modified perspective I'm not against this at all. As a daily driver, not a fan. I wondered how long it would take someone to do this to their iQ. Jason here in So Cal has had vertical doors installed before he even took the car home. See what you think. I borrowed the pictures from Vertical Doors Facebook page.

I would never buy this mod again it's too expensive and on my smart it just ended up being a hassle with a gas shock failing after only 3 months of being on smart car. Stay away!

Yeah, but do they get up and all the way out? It looks like the mod actually cramps your egress space, like they stop with the door still in your face. If I could see a kit that would get the doors all the way out, practically over the hood, I'd look into it. I'm also looking for a swing-arm/slide kit that'd roll the doors suicided and backwards, minivan style...

This is my car. and Honestly I have had vertical doors on my xB for 2+ years. I did brake a bolt once but was easy to fix. To be honest I would have vertical doors on every car I own. I like them and haven't had any problems with them. I know have a 5ad lip kit and an orange and black carbon fiber hood as well as rims. Soon the back seat is coming out for a system and tv and 360. also color matching some interior pieces.

Welcome to the forums Jason. Glad to see you on here. Post up some pics of your ride now that you have the other stuff on it.

The lip kit isn't painted or installed yet. I will post pics here and there. The orange and black carbon fiber hood looks awesome though. Especially in the sunlight.
The pictures I've seen do look good. I bet they don't do it justice compared to seeing it outdoors. Looking forward to seeing it completed.
