    Default New door handles?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum, just discovered the website yesterday!
    I have a 2003 53 Vectra 2.2DTI SXI in Star Silver.
    I have the original boring black door handles and would like to upgrade them to colour matched, alloy (brushed?), or chrome. I have searched the net and can only find stick on covers. Can anyone help?

    you could try some of the new facelift vectra's full chrome handles, they fit straight on...there is a how-2 on swapping them..this will show you how to remove them even if you want to get them painted to match..

    Any idea how much these facelift door handles cost?
    Can I only get them from a vx dealer?

    Thanks for the info, the chrome covers are around £65, but I am concerned they will not fit properly or fall off!

    our long term test on that is Drinky, he's had them fitted to the 'vectaru' for a while now and he's had no problems with them..

    Had these on mine when I bought it.




    I think they look great, although they were factory fitted.
