After my original keyless go issues with my handle, some of you may recall I posted some info on how to repair these.

My repair gave up today, some few months later. It looks like weather has gotten in where I sealed, oh well.

I've ordered a new handle today, and I asked the dealer how much to paint Designo Varicolour 4 when it arrives.

Any guesses? :D

I was waaay out.

Many handles now come unpainted as the stocks run out

£200 is my guess

Well I guessed £100 and I was way out - I'm not saying either way yet.

And Malcolm is right, they do not come painted :)

And the answer is.....................















£36.00 INCLUDING VAT!!!! :shock:

Just goes to show it is always worth asking rather than assuming. I should have known better I guess, I used the main dealer for all of my Porsche parts and they were always very reasonable, they always gave me a good price and a good service.

Atleast, I wasn't far off! :)

If there was a prize you would have won!

The guys here thought it would be in three figures as well lol.
