    Vidit first let me me cogratulate you for new Linea.

    Vinyl on door handles & mirrors is not a new thing to do. We have Anandlnt ( TFI Member) who used carbon fibre vinyl on his Punto mirrors. So go ahead with vinyls but make sure you do all this stuff from professional

  3. Ya..for sure im going to do this from professionals...and how much carbon fibre vinyl cost....is it better(quality,durability) then a normal vinyl..??
    :D

    Carbon fiber vinyl has good quality. I used it for Rear Spoiler of my new 90HP Punto Diesel. It looks sporty.

    You can use Carbon Fiber on mirrors and door handles should be in body color. I bought Carbon Fiber yesterday for Rs. 25/sq ft

    I will recommend you to buy door handles of Linea Emotion Pack. It suits to Linea.

    Guys, I thought carbon fibre vinyl is always black in color. Please correct my misunderstandling, if any.

    The thread starter wants to get the door handles and ORVMs body colored.

    @Vidit Gupta- Painting the door handles is costly as they will have to remove all 4 door handles before painting them which is a tricky process in itself as I remember TFIan Sumit Bahl spending around 2.5 hours just to get them removed.
    You can get the ORVMs painted from some good body shop in your region for a better price as compared to the authorized service center.
    For getting the door handles painted from outside, you need to know whether they know how to remove these handles or not.
