I can not be the only person who shuts (and has instructed the woman likewise) their boot like this



Is there a handle from new mine is missing?

Is so I'll buy oem, but if not then I'm going to have to 'fashion' something.


That feeling when someone shuts your (inevitability dusty and sooty from stage 4) boot with their fingers pulling down on the poor paintwork :(
like I said, maybe I'm just ocd, if this doesn't bother anyone else.

huh is that it!

I thought something to like hook your fingers in and around possibly would be better

Thanks for that though

Can this little beauty be purchased at the dealers then?

Yes, the boot strap can be purchased at the dealers and fits in the same place as the newer models. Very simple job.

Whatever your OCD issue is, I have the same.

Kuro Black is a nightmare and you're correct that it will leave scratches.

Also don't like the silly tab on later models, agree it should be a loop.

Let me know if you find anything to suit and I'll get the same.

Wait till you see the fingerprint scratches appear, then you'll know what he's talking about.

well, yes, true.

Mine is a bit scratched as well, but surely you have the same problem with the door handles - how do you avoid that ?

It does its job, and it's discrete.

The love the GT3 RS door handles. Charge you more than a normal GT3 and get away with crap like this :)

I shut mine using the Nissan badge (same OCD issue - and I've trained the wife now) but clearly you don't have the badge. Stupid lazy design from Nissan :-(

Really pathetic that Porsche do that...and get away with it. The weight saving is nearly unmeasurable.

Really pathetic too that nissan use such poor paint it gets scratched by shutting your boot. Makes you want to go and buy a Porsche with mikey mouse door openers

Ha, she's been trained on that TOO ;)

Shut by pushing on the silver handle part ONLY, no contact with the paint work
