Scalding hot door handles

I had mine wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl. No more heat.

I've seen a clear vinyl wrap in case you don't want to change the color. Not sure of that would help with the heat the same way though

I keep a small towel in the trunk. If the door handle is on the sun side, I open the trunk, get the towel, and open the door using the towel. It works, and the AZ sun is not something to fool with.

Wrap it. See RPMTesla.com
I just added a bunch of great aftermarket items and the CF looks fantastic.
IT really too dark for good exterior shots, but the CF on console looks super.

florida.
here in FLA, and I suspect in many other hot locales, the wiser people know that a good parking spot is not a close parking spot, it is a spot with some kind of shade. that said this is an unintended consequence of the "bright" handles. wrapping them is a solution.
