    Thanks for bringing this up, Clallan - it seems like kids these daze just don't care about the innards of their door handles, opening the door (so to speak) for abuse by cost-cutting scoundrels like Mercedes-Benz, who have exploited this attention gap (so to speak) to scrimp on the door handles in even top-of-the-line S-Class models whilst millenials are too busy txting while turning left to notice.

    Who will have the courage to start a petition to get MB to retropaint our door handle innards?

    And who will volunteer to bump the thread until we reach a million signatures?

    1. Open your door.
    2. Peer into the exposed bits of the handle.
    3. Note in horror that a portion of the internal plastic is unpainted.
    4. Cry in your beer.

    This ranks as the single silliest complaint registered to date in these annals. Care to top it?

    I for one dream of an America where all door handles are painted. An America where cars are not judged by the content of their character but by the tightness of their gaps.

    I don't even remember who brought it up but it's not important... it's eminent domain now and belongs to the forum community.

    I nominate @2katman2 to be the champion of the unpainted door handle internals... first order of business... we need a better name for this if it's gonna compete with the Mighty Door Gap. I'm Team Unpainted Door Handle Internals -- all the way! You door gap fanboys are in for it.

    As soon as an organization - any organization - is formed, the original cause becomes secondary to the survival of the organization.

    I think our cause is best served by a leaderless, structureless, invisible force.

    You can't kill a snake if you can't find the head.


    The unpainted door handle innards complaint is known by many names, but perhaps the member who originally brought it to our attention said it best in in his summation:

    "Not pleased."
