After 5 years (can't believe I've had the car that long) of hating the OEM door pulls, I finally had them covered in proper leather by Exclusive Options (a P9 sponsor). Frank did a great job. Now I want to just sit in the car and admire the pulls. Rather than having my car apart for a couple of weeks, I bought used pulls from ebay and sent them to EO. The install was amazingly easy, and it's worth removing the door cards just to admire the engineering that went into the method of attachment. I was really impressed. Although I got the leather interior option with my car, in 2013 that didn't include the door pulls. Before and after photos attached.

I like it! Is this the same as "Leather Stitched Door Handle Surround Trims" on there web site? Not sure since they have no photo. Neither did I see anything about sending them the door pulls. Also what did you have to pay for the pair?

Thanks. These are not listed on his page. Mine are the 1st he did for this type of pull. We basically copied what is in the Spyder. You can buy leather wrapped pulls from Porsche directly, but they want $1,100 EACH. I also searched for used ones for > a year and gave up. I paid $400 each. My wife originally thought that was obscene, then she looked at the new and old side-by-side and said it was a good deal. :)

Looks great!

Now it's time to remove those awful warning labels from sunvisors...

I was able to find pair of used OEM Leather/Silver door pulls on Ebay last week and got them for a steal (compared to new part prices, that is). Just got them installed, and I'm loving the results.

For anyone looking to do this, there are some really good videos on YouTube for removing the door panel without borking the any of the plastic clips. After that, it's basically just 4 screws for each door pull (and removing the window control pod on the driver's door). All in all, it was a smooth and easy install.

Is the silver on these plastic or some sort of metal? Can you tell? They look great!

It's the same material as the other silver accents in the interior like the interior door handle, AC vent surrounds, and the line that goes across the dash that includes the cup holders.

it looks and feels like metal, but whether or not it's *actually* metal, I couldn't say.
