    Default Why Doesnt It Have Chrome Handles !!!

    After owning the car for a while now, i finally realised that the Elite is meant to have Chrome handles as standard, and after seeing them on many, i began to think, where are mine!

    Mine are just the body coloured ones, and am confuused. Have vauxhall made a mistake?

    The car is misty morning/grey.

    Thanks Guys.

    Not sure mate!!

    I have had a look at the spec too, in standard spec for an elite it says "chrome effect door handles" but in the detailed spec it does not mention door handles but does state that you get chrome effect window trim!!

    maybe it's an optional extra??!! or a typo on the spec??

    I'm sure someone will be along soon to shed some light on it.

    it wasnt dropped at all though !!!

    its still standard on the elite if you buy one on a new plate, and mine is a 55 plate, i.e the first facelift model !

    And i certainnly shudnt have to pay anthing for them if they should be on it.

    Maybe its to do with the colour of the car or somthing. I dont know.

    But there defo standard on the Elite 100% sure.

    try contacting your dealer!
    OR ring the parts dept and ask them if it left the factory with them!
    if the first owner of the car may of choose colour coded handles instead of the chrome!

    I've got a feeling they became standard around 2007. Could be wrong!

    in actual fact they got added m8, mines is a 54 plate and they are colour coded, previous versions I thin were either the same or were the black vynal ones. Later models got them as standard.
