Chrome door handles or not?

Ok my drivers side door handle decided to pack it in and its time for a new one. A mates 351 XD has chrome door handles and it suits it rather well.

So my choice is to either get a new black door handle and replace the dead one, or get a new set of chrome ones which i dont mind paying for (doesnt cost a lot).

So heres a pic of the black handles and then the chrome ones i've photoshopped on.


Im going to the shops tomorrow morning, so this is a last minute post to see what people would think

Whats do you all think.





PS. I've ordered the clear rear indicators so I added them into the photoshopped picture very roughly, and accidentally saved over the image... so you can ignore that

Re: Chrome door handles or not?

Yep, go the chromies

They look good, makes the car look even more clean

Oh, and hurry up and bolt those clear t/lights on! They just seem to complete the look of the car or somethin'

Get the black ones and paint them white...that'd be what i'd do.

But the chrome does look good!

Re: Chrome door handles or not?

It's funny ya know, back in the early 90's when me and mates where all in XD-XF's we would never have dreamed of putting chrome door handles on!

In fact it was the opposite, black trim and handles were all the rage back then

Sign of the times I s'pose, people are after the clean look these days and I aint seen a cleaner looking XF than yours XF Falcon

Re: Chrome door handles or not?

Get the chrome and paint them black or get black ones and have them chromed (joke)
