Not sure if anyone test drove the 300C before buying a Charger, but I did, and I gotta say, I like the door handles on the 300 so much better than the Charger's. If there is even the slightest bit of moisture or humidity, I find that my hand slips off the Charger handle very easily. I don't imagine it would be very easy to switch out to the 300 style door handle...but I was just curious if anyone else has noticed this, and further, if anyone has come up with any ingenious solutions to remedy this design deficiency.

FYI...overall, I love the car!

I agree with you, mines is always slipping out my hand, and I think my girlfriend scrathes it on the passenger side with her nails! Not a big problem, but its just one of those little things. . . you know?

Unless you modify your doors, you cannot add the 300 or magnum handles. Its an entirely different door panel.

put some grip tape on the back side! Well maybe not grip tape as on a skateboard but they make a tape that is very similar to the compound and texture of spray in bed liner. I think that would prevent the slippage. As far as changing them out it would be easy for an experianced body man but will require body work and paint. In my opinion I like the flat handles on the Charger better than the ones on the Magnum and 300.

yea i agree a little with all of yall. i hate the way the handles feel: weak, flimsy, and slippery. but i like that they are flat/flush with the body of the car. i think a rubbery grip tape might help.

I agree guys, as an ex Magnum owner, the door pulls worked much better on the Maggy.
But...the flush ones look better on the Charger, plus with the increased aerodynamics, you shave of at least .000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of a millisecond off your ET's

you could always put the actuaters from a shaved door kit on, but not shave. Then you would have the handles if you wanted or the remote to open them as well.
