After some of the talk about mods i got to binging around the net and was wondering if anyone else has done any looking into or may have known anyone to install suicide doors on the CTS ....
there are a few sites that offer somthing of hinges and what not however i seriously considering this to my first major mod on new object of complusive tinkering
anyone see any hang ups other than the possible nightmare of relocating the wiring ..

They should be wearing seat belts! Anyway... If this were to be done, I think it would definitely need to new 2008 CTS door handles.. I'm not sure it would look right without them...

Lambo Doors were a thought however ..... its somthing that truly has been done and even though its has a certain apeal i would rather go with this option . As for the center beam i dont really want to go and start hacking at that. And seat belts are indeed a must when your with me... Remeber playing is not suppose to hurt ......

Lambos are to Ricey in my opinion. I like the rear suicide doors with shaved door handles. It's a very clean look for the aero CTS lines. Either 4 or 2 doors look fine. Myself I'd only shave the rear handled. A friend of mine did that to a CTS-V and added rear bucket seats. This looks awesome on a Blackillac!!!

I think that you can take out the center support beam but for what i want i will not. messing with the roof structure for some some reason does not sit all that well with me or the gents that will be making this project happen

I thought about it seriously but feared it would negatively affect the resale value. Just research it thoroughly. Mazda's trick is the rear doors can't be opened until the front doors are opened. The have shaved door handles too.
