I broke the door handle and GM no longer makes the part. Anyone know of a source?

Plan on moving the handle over into the factory black surround.
The jobber handle works fine but the texture of the surround is not the same.

Also, ask if they could physically look through the package to verify which side it is.
I bought the jobber one.

RIGHT HAND inside package.

Vender went over and above to make it right but it added a week to fixing my wifes door.

Fact of the matter, they are available anywhere you look.
Amazon, ebay, rockauto, napa, the list goes on and on

I will give you, some of those vendors are going to be bright chrome.
I have only bought them from GM and GTOG8.com.
While the finish and color of the GTOG8 handle is good, the outer surround is only a fair match.
In my defense, the actual GM part is sold by rockauto, summit etc and the LMG1405 that GTOG8 sells , and I bought, is available from numerous vendors

Yes the actual GM part $180+ @ rockauto is the silver handle. All the other 13 are chrome or black.
How many here would buy just one All black or chrome and install it in the car, and the other three are silver? I bet not one member here would.

Personal preference were the black door handles. Never got around to swapping them out primarily since only one of the original door handles were damaged. Merely tried not to glance in its direction too often. Smh.

Those handle photos 95wagon poster. That coarser grain grain matches the vinyl of the door panel better than the originals. At least my my car they do.

GTOG8TA sent the chrome by mistake but shipped out the correct part immediately. I appreciate the tip about moving the handle to my factory housing. The replacement housing was much darker black.
