    Default inner door handles - worn

    Hey folks just new to the forum. Got my 03 plate vectra on 71,000 miles but thing that is worrying me is the fact the inner door handles are worn ie rubber peeling off in parts. i showed one of the lads from work the car and he was having a joke that the miles had been tampered with. the stearing wheel is also showing signs of wear and tear other than that the car looks stunning.

    what kind of milage would these start to show signs of damage and should i be worried? cheers folks

    thats good to know there cheep enough. but what milage would they start to get worn? you'd think they'd last longer than 71.000 miles.

    Depends on how much people rub them while they're driving, especially the stereo controls. Also easily scratched with long nails. A lot of people have covered them in carbon fibre wrap, looks good. If you have a standard steering wheel, get a leather one, lots on ebay. HTH

    as above = repaint your own or vinyl wrap them - they will peel at any milage if the drivers or occupants wear rings on the hand that there using to open/close the doors or have long fingernails and scratch the finish

    when i got my signum it looked like freddy kruger or a trapped occupant had tried to claw their way out of the motor
