Sounds like a cool mod.. just takes some time and money...

I'd never do it though.. just personal opinion...

Don't do it if the car is your daily driver. I shaved the handles on my old car and while they were cool, it became a big pain in the ass. I "locked" myself out of the car on several occassions. I would need to run in the house for a sec and leave the car running, as soon as the door closed I thought "damn"... lol I got very good at breaking into my car. I would leave the door open and a gust of wind would blow it closed ghead


Also when the temp gets below zero, the poppers themselfs freeze up and don't work. Luckly I had an alarm that I could roll the windows down with, so it was ok in winter for me.

Like I said, they are cool and really clean up the lines of the car, but its a huge pain.

I would avoid it beacsue of potential failures. It would look really cool, though. So it's all a matter of how much you care about looks.

I wouldn't do it, to me it's a waste of time and money, and result would not be worth it.

Smoothes out the bodylines a little. In the door are poppers operated by remote that pop the door open slightly.

If you do it, make sure you have a good, reliable, alternate method to get into your car just in case the poppers fail.
