The IND F10 M5 Door Handle Program

Over the years we have proven the importance of details to ourselves and our clients time and time again. Any of our portfolio project cars, no matter how extravagant, are made or broken by their small details.

IND has created a host of cosmetic components for the F10 M5 to help our clients address those ever-important fine elements, and today we are proud to add the last item to our F10 M5 cosmetic parts lineup-

The IND F10 M5 Door Handle Program

After exploring every possible avenue of delivering painted door handle inserts to our clients, we found that a core exchange program was the best possible option. IND has pre-purchased several sets of OE BMW door handles, and will offer custom painted options for all F10 M5 owners.

IND will send custom painted door handles on a core exchange basis. Each set will cost $335 and will be painted to match your carís exterior paint. The inner decorative strip can be finished in gloss black, matte black, or also matched to the carís exterior paint color. A return shipping label will be included with each package, and your original door handles can be shipped back to IND as a core return.

Core program price - $335.00
Paint options - Matte and gloss black + body color

How easy / difficult is it to take off the handles for the exchange?

Here you go

The first step is removing the rubber plug located on the door jamb portion of the door panel. Removing this plug enables access to the Torx15 bolt that secures the handle assembly in place. Remove the plug using your fingers or a nylon trim removal tool.







Now that the rubber piece is removed take a quick peek with a flashlight and locate the position of the T15 screw. Although our technician used a 18" long driver you can get by with a standard 7.5" tool. Simply remove the screw and move on to step number 3.





The T15 screw is the only major component securing the handle assembly to the door. The only other area secured to the door is the front portion of the handle. Now with light pressure pull the handle toward you as if you were opening the door.



As you begin to pull the handle you will notice the front portion of the handle is secured to the door via a 2 pin connector. These connectors are removed by unlatching the plastic tab on each pin. For this step our technician used a angled pick, but this step allows for some improvisation.







Now that the 2 pin connector you can safely remove the handle from the door.



Installation is simply the reverse procedure, but please note that while the handle is removed the door will not properly latch. Do not close the door while the handles are not attached to the car.
