Looks like grains of sand (appear stuck all over side of car) have got into the handle docking shell. A warning for all to watch what gets into these places - but with the shape of the doors, getting mud in there would probably involve some severe green lane work.

Wow, those look deep. I bet they are clearcoat scratches though. Easy to sand, polish out if they are. One way to find out... Get some Meguiars Scratch X 207ml | Halfords UK takes them out very easily if they are clear coat. If you can catch your finger nail in the scratch it can only be masked, not fixed fully.

Green is available in Norway. A tad too dark for my liking.

I hope there is some way to make sure this does not happen. Does not look good.

I wonder how close the top of the handle is to the plastic trim and if grit gets stuck between the two and causes scratches.

Anyone with there car able to look and see how close the gap is?

I've followed this up on Facebook, more photos being posted, looks like handle alignment issue affecting some but not all cars.

My car has a fair gap on all 4 doors, no scratches on the handles yet, maybe given time it could happen, fairly gritty out there on the Scottish roads just now. I would say my car is approaching how dirty that green car is after only 200 miles driving in the wet/ice/salty conditions, 1-4 degrees here just now, grit lorries out most days.
