At a minimum I'm going to pull the handles and complete strip the remaining coating so they don't look so bad. I'm wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to get the coating material so I could respray it? If not, they will remain the underlying beige plastic color.
Hi, fortunately there is an easy fix for the damaged rubber coating of the door handle in bmw E53, here is the link to the video

It's literally the only interior wear on my car. I'm hoping I can remove the handle the next time I have the door apart and was planning to use some heat shrink tubing to make a perfectly smooth seamless repair.
