It's been done quite a few times. First guy I saw has an E36 325ic, black on black. He runs around my area. They look amazing, not very practical though.

are u show or go.. or everyday driver...???

Lambo is better for parking.. Gull Wing -> like the back to the future dilorian is better for looks.. not got for parking though..

if u go with either you will damage your body.. no matter which way you install it or which hinge.. the load of the door will eventually warp you frame.. i can fwd a whole post on this but i am lazy.. If ur going show and ur car is a trailer queen then please do it .. if u driving this thing around don't do it.. You will hurt ur BMW..

well..actually i would prefer the lambo doors instead of the gullwing....mainly because of the load the door will give to the chassis...but if there's no lambo...then i guess i'll go with the gullwings'...and stiff out the chassis a bit...

the only webpage i've found is www.supie.com
http://www.supie.com/pg.html a couple of featured pic's.. (including the e36 conv.)

The only problem is that they sell you the instructions of how to do it... and not the kit...

by the way...suicide...nice job with your car...

its not possible to make your doors GULL WING>.. the roof will cave in... lambos will cuase over all damage on the frame over time... and well ..... and what u are asking for is not GULL WING it is modified lambo's instead of going straight up they go stright up on an angle... like mentioned above.. if ur a daily driver this is definitly a NO NO.. but cheers if u go through with it..

oooh...suicide....the doors that i'm talking about are not like the delorian....they're not attached to the roof...

Hamann Las Vegas M3 then click on "special cars" to the right....

those are the doors i'm talking about...
(of course, with the lightweight doors...)
