I have a C180 coupe in silver but it has black door handles which Id like to change to silver. Has anyone done this before, if so how much did the parts cost or would I be better off getting the current black handles sprayed silver?
Though the solution Malcolm says works, i found it more convenient and a lot less hassle to actually buy the handles already painted for my W202, though when ordered i was told that there was only a limited amount of coloured door handles produced of each colour and if my colour was,nt available, they would,nt know until it turned up, as it would of been substituted for a plain black one and then the procedure would be as Malcolm has said.
Handles for a w202 are approx £20 each, and i had all mine fitted (4 door) inside of an hour. I would imagine they would be a similar price for your later C class, and being silver and a later model you can almost guarentee they,ll have coloured ones in UK stock (mine had to come from Germany).
