Hi,

Ive been seeing these brushed metal door handles on some of the newer models around town, "last year's models..."

And i'm wondering if they are structurally different and if i can fit some on my 06 sedan?

Anyone seen these things around?



Upon some searching i found these...

comments?

they look like the keyholes not cut and if you read the ad it says "All Parts Sold Are Exactly The Same As Shown In The Listing Picture, Check Carefully Before Placing Your Bid"

You only need one handle with the keyhole cutout, on the driverside.

If you like the chrome, go for it.

ya but he would have to cut out that one hole himself, in the pic shown the key hole is chromed over ( not sure if you didnt notice, the keyhole is chromed over ) assuming he would even use or want it, and i guarantee the chrome will chip when u cut it, and the plastic behind it will need to be cut perfectly.

I have the chrome door handle covers and they look just as good. I have had them for 3 years with no chips,scratches. You get the same look without the expensive price.

They are also on E-Bay
