Chrome door handles!

I just finished installing some chrome door handles on my 2011 Equinox 2LT. IMO it ties all the chrome together without adding too much chrome.
I got the OEM door handles from my local dealer ($139, no gmpartsdirect in Canada, and online prices were the same as the dealer). Super easy install; the handles came with instructions, and took about 15-20 minutes total to do all the doors.

The pictures don't do them justice--they look awesome =D.

Re: Chrome door handles!

They look really nice. . Is there anything you would like to change on your vehicle since you got it?

Re: Chrome door handles!

Yes, these do look nice...now you need to get some chrome pillars to tie all the chrome trim around the windows together.

Re: Chrome door handles!

Chrome pillars I think would be too much for me, but I do want to chrome up my roof rails. I also want to add the footwell convenience lighting, and maybe LED-up my interior lighting .

And if I could change one thing about my nox, it would be a new engine to get rid of the startup rattle... Thankfully no stalls or bad mileage yet! Otherwise I love it. Got rid of a 2007 Buick Rendezvous, and there is just NO comparison between the two.

Re: Chrome door handles!

The Chrome pillars look sharp on the Nox. Again each person has to decide on how they want to customise their vehicles

Art indeed is in the eye of the beholder...

I like the look as it is now...would NOT do the roof rails or the mirrors...

This color "blings" the way it is now...with the handles

IMO the roof rails being a different color would make this nox look more upscale. The door handles were a good start and better than stock but when I see a car with chrome roof rails it usually signifies a better trim package and might help your eventual resale. Everyone is a critic so do what you like, either way your car still looks good!
