anyone found a decent stick on chrome door handle?

Ive been watching some stick on chrome door handles on eBay for months, debating to buy them or not. Hoping gm would make one. Has anyone bought a pair? how are they quality wise and fit and finish? pics?
thanks

I saw a new Camaro with chrome handles and it looked like crap, (IMO). Chrome was cool in the 50's thru the 70's but not now.

personally wouldn't put them on my car,but if you like them,get them.
if everyone liked the same things,it would be a boring world.

You should check to see if the Pontiac G8 trim will fit the Camaro handle. They look very similar. Theirs is more of an outline. It will add something to your car without overdoing it.

Sorry guys, but chrome handles are good.
and coming from a guy who loves tri five chevy's I think its understandable why.
the side needs something other than just paint. a nice chrome handle would set it off.
My question here was not do you like chrome, it was has anyone got the tape ones and actually liked the quality of those. If gm comes out with the real deal I would switch it to those

the G8 is similar as is the new buick lacross and regal. but the dealer will not tell me if it will work or not. no sense in buying it if it wont work

Have to say, I think I'd like this. I don't think I'd go for a fully covered chrome handle, but this with the body color in the middle could be nice!
