I'm getting a Koup with the navi package but the one thing that bugs me a bit is the plastic chrome door handles. I would like them body color. Has anyone successfully painted them body color?

Agreed with FEARtheFox! When I had mine done they had to be ordered in. I'm not sure it's a good idea to paint over the plastic chrome coating on the original handles.

Actually Ryan... I had to paint over the chrome....so far I have had no issues with the paint holding...other than were the bodyshop did not clearcoat...LOL...so we sent them back to be repainted and everything is fine. Reason I had to do this is that the orange is only on the KOUP and no other model.
