chrome door handles

I have an 01' and handles are gettin tired lookin. Anyone here get and put on those chrome door handles or the other cups. The cups I don't like. I wanna know the difference in appearance and type of quality if any most that I have seen on ebay are in made of plastic but I want metal chrome ones for the feel! Any input would be appreciated! Pics too!

I agree...the chrome handles will add a nice touch.

I too would like to get some advice on the ebay ones.

Ladi... Paint the handles silver... I think that looks better personally

Yeah good idea. That wouldn't cost much either. But there is different texture between the sheet metal and the plastic stuff so it might not look right unless you sand them. I don't know though?

No, they're not plastic(Aluminum chromed, I believe)...I looked all over prior to purchasing them--here's the link that I find relatively cheaper(not much of an eBay person--bad experience once):
http://www.formymercedes.com/viewAll_W163.asp

Engisoft and other sites also carry them--but cost more.

Kind regards,
Reynaldo

p.s.: I'm quite sure--they're not made from China...~Smiles~..

You're welcome!
At Engisoft, however, there's this chrome grill--very distinctive expression for ML's...(thicker/wider)....I really like it--but am debating on whether or not I should get them...for a simple reason, I wonder; will there be enough air flow through (especially in hot summer time) as compares to "honey comb" one?
Any opinion on that?


Kind regards,
Reynaldo
