sticky door handles and leather dye 550i

had the sticky door handle problem on 2012 f10/550i oyster interior, and thought id post my experience.

on the drivers side bought a cheap replacement, quality looked good but fitment was an issue, so returned and bought the oem part for around 50usd on ebay.

on the right/passenger side bought the cheap part on ebay (only the plastic portion) for around 10usd, fit well, and color was a good match to oyster.

installation was easy - you will find on utube.

on the left side had some discoloration of the door panel leather and bought some dye from seatdoctors.com. Andy was very helpful, and sye was a perfect match.

I think you guys are talking about these pieces. They are older photos, but I replaced mine with carbon fiber look. I bought two different kits, one was the door pull handle and the door lever trim. The pull handles for passenger and rear doors is only half of the handle, wish I could find the other half in carbon but I may settle for having them epoxy/resin wrapped here soon. The do have other colors that match OEM trim fairly well depending on where and who you get it from.

I bought some black covers on Amazon to fix the sticky handle problem. Worked great and fit perfectly. Very cheap and easy fix.
