LSD Mercedes-Benz SLK Review

January 2005
Filed under: LSD Car News | LSD Headlines
Last year’s most sensational new release was unquestioningly the door fittings from LSD, a brand of KW automotive GmbH, for converting from conventional doors to wing doors. This spectacular, vehicle-specific solution is now available for wing doors in a Lamborghini style also for the

Smart Roadster

and the

Mercedes SLK

. The LSD door furniture comes complete with TÜV (German safety standards institute) parts certificate, which confirms that the LSD wing doors comply with all safety standards.

Compared to other retrofit sets for wing doors, the LSD fittings made in Germany are more impressive due to their absolutely sound engineering and the highest-possible standard of quality. The “ready-to-install” solution makes installation quick and easy without any welding or repainting necessary.

Another convincing feature is their perfect fit, thanks to the ability to make three-dimensional adjustments. The LSD door fittings are mounted directly at the points where the original doors were removed. With the added fittings, the otherwise unchanged doors open first outward and then gently glide upward and stop. Adjustable buffers prevent the doors from being opened too wide or from falling downward or inward when open. A simple grip is all it takes to close the door.

On the one hand, the LSD solution allows you to open the door in a outward motion with an aperture angle of approx. 25°; on the other hand, it also allows you to swing the wing door upward, and all that without any great exertion.

The LSD wing doors lend any car a sensational look and are the ideal solution for all fans of unusual tuning and show cars. The LSD door fittings are available from LSD or special dealers at a suggested price of € 1,350 plus the standard VAT for the Smart Roadster and € 1,550 plus the standard VAT for the Mercedes SLK.
