    If your car's still in warranty, I don't see why not. If it's out of warranty I wouldn't have thought so! Mine's a long way out of warranty so I'm going to live with it!

    I thought about removing the handles, peeling all the covering off and putting them back on as I think this would look a lot better, but I've read that getting the handles off is a bit of a nightmare (I think Markb did it?) so as I say I think I'll just live with it.

    This has happened to my dads A6 really bad both on the door handle where the electric window controls are and on the fan speed buttons on the air conditioning.

    It's out of warranty soon so will try to get it sorted, watch this space.

    Re: peeling interior trim....

    When I bought my A3 (when it was 4 years old), the door armrests/handles were peeling quite badly, but I talked the salesman into replacing them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img], and the replacements so far haven't peeled at all, 4.5 years on (touch wood). Either they made the coating a bit tougher, or I've been more careful than the previous owner...
