Interior Trim Pricing - OUCH !

Recommended Posts

The paint on the interior drivers door handle in Alumalook has worn off from the previous owner's wedding ring. So I thought I would see what it would cost to replace it. In addition I thought it might be nice to change out the door pocket cover and door pull with the leather covered trim as provided on the S models (I have a base Boxster). I recently replaced the amber side markers with clear. The price from Sunset Porsche was about $12 each. Very reasonable. I sent Jeff Clark (great to work with) at Sunset Porsche an email inquiring as to the pricing. Check this out:

997 555 461 000 V05 - Alumalook Interior Door Handle - L 134.27 a week away

997 555 221 01 FSD - Leather Door Pocket Cover - L - Sea Blue 276.91 a month from Germany

997 555 222 01 FSD - Leather Door Pocket Cover - R - Sea Blue 276.91 month away

987 555 271 02 FSD - Leather Door Pull -L- Sea Blue 281.11 month away

987 555 272 02 FSD - Leather Door Pull -R- Sea Blue 281.11 month away, but only one shown in Germany, so if it's not really there it could be up to a year away.

WOW !! This is not a slam in Sunset. I am sure this is the best price available for this. But man, that is expensive. It makes me wonder if Porsche is purposely over pricing these parts to keep owners such as myself from upgrading to S type trim. Wow.

So, if anyone knows where I might get a used replacement interior drivers side alumalook door handle (same used on 997) for less than $130, please let me know. Thanks.
