With gull-wing door plates by LSD, the sporty Volkswagen Scirocco (type 13) becomes a real head-turner. The price for these component parts is 1,549 Euro.

The plates for the Volkswagen Scirocco are equipped with the new GRS (Guided Roller System) which provides even more safety and precision when opening and closing the doors due to its adjustable roller guide. LSD plates are delivered with a part certificate by the German Technical Control Board which ensures that the LSD gull-wing doors fulfil all security standards.

Compared to other retrofit-sets for gull-wing doors, the LSD plates “made in Germany“ impress with a fully developed technology and the highest-possible quality standard. Moreover, a test laboratory accredited by the Federal German Transport Authority confirmed in a side crash-test that the LSD-solution which is patented in Germany is as safe as any serially fitted door. That means that passenger safety in a side crash is guaranteed according to guideline 96/27/EG by the LSD hinge system. LSD enables an easy and quick assembly without welding or painting works and impresses by its perfect fitting accuracy due to its three-dimensional adjustment.

The LSD plates are fitted to the original door attachment points of the dismantled original plates. After the assembly, the otherwise unchanged original door first opens outwards and then securely guided and damped upwards. Adjustable plates stop doors from opening too far or from falling inwards or downwards when opened. And also, it only takes one grip to close the doors. The LSD gull-wing doors render a sensational look to any car and are the ideal solution of fans of extraordinary tuning- and show cars. The LSD door plates can be obtained directly from LSD or from a specialist dealer.

probably one of my favorite VW’s (behind the CC). of course it isn’t coming to the US, the rest of the world thinks we only drive big fat gas guzzling monster trucks, which is some what true. But there are the few that like a small good looking car such as the scirocco.
