Love the chrome look, so I am not looking to chrome delete or even stealth / matte them..... But MY GOD these things get soiled quick! Anyone found a good solution that maintains the chrome appearance?

Did you get a coating done on the car? If not, would that help in keeping fingerprints and/or scratches to a minimum?

If you are going to put a film on them, why not just put a patina of fingerprints on the handle. I actually LIKE that they are so shiny when you buff them out. Cannot think of a way to protect the finish from prints that doesn't impact the look.

Not sure if you were responding to me but I was referring to a ceramic coating and not film but apparently the coating does not prevent fingerprints.
