Cheers!

You know many E46 models here in Europe are sold with black door handles and so is mine (320d). I've decided that now they've got to go - I want to get them painted. My main concern is how to get them removed? I tried to search for some info but couldn't find any... ummm so do I have to remove the door panels first or is there an easier way to proceed? :dunno:

Thanks in advance!

it probably isn't that much work to do that

take it to a body shop and have them give you a qoute. Ask them what would be involved.... they can point you in the right direction at least.

umm well yeah, a friend of mine runs a small body shop, actually I already had my m3 trunk spoiler painted there (not in that pic above) and I'm satisfied with the result - I'd like to remove door handles by myself and take the parts to the shop just to be painted, I'd save a bunch of money by doing so... :confused:
