I visited a showroom yesterday to have a look at their demonstration model and was very impressed. However, one very minor disappointment was the door handles, which were a different colour from the bodywork. I had a look at the website again just now and, as I thought, it says Laureates have 'body coloured door handles'. Has this changed?

The brochure actually says "Satin Chrome Door Handles", so the website must be incorrect. What colour were the door handles on the demonstrator model?

Welcome to the site by the way

They were satin on the 3 I've seen, it's just that they blend in on the silver coloured model and stand out on the blue and grey ones.

Thanks for the welcome!

The door handles were indeed satin. I was beginning to doubt myself, but just checked again and it definitely says body-coloured door handles online: http://www.dacia.co.uk/vehicles/duster/prices-and-specifications/index.jsp?modelKey=79H&versions=VEC270_GRBR%2CVEC274_GRBR&userPriceType=&codes=&toggles=&show=2&diff. It would never have been a deal breaker, but it was one of the number of features that originally persuaded me to order a higher spec model. Ho hum, never mind.

I had a test drive last week of a 4 X 2 Laureate and the door handles were satin silver. They are flimsy and look a little cheap. However, it wasn't going to stop me ordering one! I expect the aftermarket people will start to offer accessories very soon. To make the door handles look better I suggest considering these:- http://www.ebay.co.u...d=230806848526

The Duster I test drove had body colour coded door handles. Both the Black and white versions available here in Ireland were colour coded, not sure about the Silver/Grey version.
