I know it is definately cold driving with the window down and sunroof open when it is 11 degrees outside (those are requirements for a smoke in the morning traffic) - but since when is it cool to have chrome door handles ?!

Guess I was spot on.

Yes, as if driving a VW was not enough of a give away as to their lack of taste they just had to make the door handles chrome... :p

Whether they are, is something that could be up for discussion.

Thank God they're not. Although you could expect this from a tool using his cellphone in the car.

Stellenbosch, it is on the R44 just after Adam Tas splits off to the right and before you cross Dorp Street.
Was waiting at the robot when this VW punk pulled up next to me... It always starts like that :p

That observation was 100% spot on, as usual. :D

Chrome on a car post-2000 just screams rice rocket, unless it's something like an Alfa Romeo or Honda Civic Type R.

I missed that! A quick look again reveals his collar is also "popped".

My god, what a tool! :rolleyes:

I have not read the thread in detail but I have seen those handles in a motor spare shop at some point and they where stickers/stick on. They stick onto the normal door handles.

I don't see the point of them unless the car is red. Red cars go faster and the chrome would help the aero-dynamics.
