Pretty cool! I like the look of the RS door pulls. Simple, adds color, and sporty.

Read farther down the thread. They don't function the same as the real thing unfortunately.

$189, "Glossy or matte hydrodipped carbon fiber finish- add $130"

Add $130.... For 130 bucks extra they better be real carbon fiber laced with gold.

Ah. Good to know. I was about set to buy some. Wasn't sure how they connected to the latch but not worth it to just put new door handles on. I like how they look well enough.

so, i'm kinda working on a 986 version myself, but it may be a bit hillbilly. martsink 3d printed me some clips that mate the door opener cable to a fabric strap. if i remove the door handle and some of the bracket it mounts to, just keeping the plastic cover piece, it will look good and not expose any of the unfinished inner workings of the door assembly. the problem is triggering the microswitch that drops the window. i think it will have to get relocated to the door latch where, if mounted in the right place, the door opener cable can trigger it there. i will keep you posted (project for next winter).

If you have access to a 3D Printer, and possibly a 3D Scanner, you can make EXACTLY what this guy is making for about 30 bucks in materials. OR you can easilly one up him and just make a plastic shell exactly like the GT3 one, remove the factory door handle and replace it with a fabbed "Rod" to connect to the strap and you can have your own GT3 Door Pulls. I'm actually gonna do this except I'm making real carbon Fiber covers for 1/5th of this guys asking price for plastic.
