    No mate solid metal handles. I fitted some quality covers to my Z3 (from Germany) this after fitting some cheapo cheap off eBay. I liked the chrome bits as mine had the factory chrome pack.

    Thanks, this one is no good as it still has the locking barrel in and no key. Unfortunately you need the key to removal the barrel. No other way to get the barrel out - trust me I be tried on another set.

    Only after the exterior handles. Don’t fancy paying that much


    Thanks for the links though :thumbsup:

    Pretty certain I drilled the centre of the lock out once as I didn't have the key.

    Perhaps a locksmith might be able to help. Worst case, like the guys have said, you can waste a drill bit and bore it out. New barrels with a key. Also on the lookout for original chrome handles but its certainly way down the list of priorities. I have planned on gettng the handles strippe back an paint 303 cosmo to match the car. What do you have in mind @Jjim ?

    The door handles on Blue have already been colour coded to the car.

    I’m after a chrome set of door handles for my Silver one. As it already has chrome side grills and chrome hoops.
