Worth replacing or not? (Door handle, interior)

Recommended Posts

So i'm not quite sure how this happened, but do you guys think its worth getting this changed? I tried to touch it in with some paint but its very hard to match the exact finish. I enquired and the part is about £295 fitted (U.S. $380 incl. taxes). If it were your car, would you get it done? Its a 2014 Cayman S (981)

 

I've taken a photo of my finger to show you a comparison of size.

Is the car still under warranty? If so, I would have replaced.

 

If not, then to me it would be a case of if it will chip off more of the finish or if filling the damaged portion will stop further damage. No one want to cut their hand opening the door.

I've managed to fill it in and sand the interface between original paint and the touch in paint down with 2500 grit to smooth it out (the photos show the finished job) It was scratching human skin before I started, but its now perfectly smooth.

 

Its not under warranty any more, but i'm getting extended warranty on the car. Why do you ask? Is it a warranty requirement that it should be all intact?
