Item arrived very quickly, usual great delivery from mx5parts. However I do think these are overpriced as it is really a chrome effect door handle, chrome is obviously a metal and these are plastic. But they look great especially if you have the chrome surrounds as well.
Editors Note: You are correct, chrome IS a metal, that is why good quality chromed plastic is expensive, it is actually very time consuming and labour intensive to make. You start by making an exact replica of the original cup using injection moulding. Then you hand polish to remove even the tiniest imperfections. Then you plate the part with copper, polish it again, plate it with nickle, polish it again, plate it with chrome and finally polish it yet again! I can assure you, these ARE real chrome.
