DG louvers???? They're not even in the vote.

Why all the dislike towards the Cervini louvers?? Just want to know what you guys don't see in them.

DG louvers are not even being considered. No voting on DG louvers.

Yeah I know...

Anyway. CDC has more of a classic louver look. It's raked more and the angle of the flat part is more pronounced. The Cervini's look too flat so that the opening looks more like vertical slits to me. Like a Modern-Retro-Modern mishmash. It could look OK and perhaps I'd have to see 'em in person (I didn't like the CDC chin in pictures either) but still CDC for me.

Oh Yeah...
DG Louvers FTW LOL

I see. I was just wondering why all the negatives comments on the Cervini louvers.

Well I've decided to go with the CDC louvers. Mainly because of the great deal I'm getting on them. Plus they're already painted black so I don't have to bother with a body shop. With that said I have a friend with CDC louvers and I think they look great on his car.

Here's some pics of my friend Shawn's (TMS name Osiris) car.





I find it funny that I just happened to focus on his louvers in all the pics. I guess subcounsiously I wanted CDC louvers.

I see you decided on the CDC's. It's a good price; not to be passed up.

If they don't work for you, maybe you should throw the DG's into the mix.

For me, I like the DG ones the best for it's small footprint.

My problem with the DG's and SHR's are that they don't look agressive enough. They're to rounded JMO. Not sure if that make's anysense.

They look like they are coming off toward the bottom... or they don't hug the contour of the car correctly. Just something to watch out for.

Actually CDC says to leave a 1/2" gap on the two bottom corners for "drainage". I'll try and leave a little less so it's not so obvious but it probably won't be as noticable on a black car.

**Edit** He also told me the body shop installed them a little low. As you can see it's almost hugging the line.

Well, not exactly round, but close to it!

BTW Tom, happy bday to you and your car... and many more!

Peeling off 3M backing and sticking on the louvers was out of his league?

If I were him, I would get some new 3M tape and install them correctly. He's giving CDC a bad name being installed like that.

OK well they're more rounded than CDC/Cervini's.

Well he had them painted at the shop so I'm guessing they included the install in the price or did it as a freebie.

I don't think it's out of his league considering he switched out his own DS and installed cmcve delete plates.

They mean a 1/2" gap in the tape for drainage, not a 1/2" gap between the louver and the body. I wouldn't like it if it didn't contour perfectly.
