Every time it gets hot and my car is in thew sun, the door handles on my S get so hot they literally burn my fingers. I've never had a car with chrome door handles that do that. Anyone else experience this?
I have the fuzzy part of Velcro tape applied to the inside part of the handle (the surface you actually pull against). It remains cool to the touch and you still get the original chrome look of the handles.

Yes. I just refer to that as a “love bite” from our P85D. She is a bit temperamental in the summer. ;)
