    Default rubbish thin rubbery coating on interior

    mines peeling on door handles, trim, and steering wheel, do they all do this?
    what solutions have people found for hiding it?
    done the door handles with carbon fibre, but no fussed on the look tbh

    I can only think of 3 options: replace the trim, scrape all the rubberised coating off, or wrap it. Spray painting it probably isn't practical for many of the items because there would be too much wear and tear over time.

    thats what i done with carbon fibre, but it just doesnt look right, would much prefer something standard looking. i sorted the steering wheel by just rubbing it off, and under it is a nice black finish, so thats ok, and done the same with the handbrake handle too (grey finish)
    ive started rubbing down the door handle parts that come off, and again that had a nice enough finish, but then i have the problem with the back of the handles on the actual door card.
    do the facelift parts have the same problem?

    That's what I've been wondering...

    My drivers door handle is really bad so was going to replace the top bit which snaps off, but the back of the handle and surround are scratched to ******y too (no idea how, I'm a guitarist so my nails are always short!)

    Wonder why manufacturers put such shoddy rubbery stuff on handles. Before I bought my vec I took a mk3 Mondeo for a test drive and the handles were gouged to death despite it only doing 30k...

    Mine are the same, the inside door handles look awful but i cant stand carbon fibre stuff, i want the same finish that came on them tbh but cant find any rubberised spray paint stuff that would give the same effect

    Snap.

    The bits on my steering whhel with the audio controls etc were really bad when I got mine. I put up with it for a week or two, then just very carefully scraped the remainder off, so it was back to the plastic. Looks much better.

    I've patiently rubbed all mine off. Took me a good couple of hours, but the result is so much better, especially on the steering wheel.
