    Hi folks first post for a while. As per the title my question is who's done it and how? Google has been no help really. First thing I thought to try was to swap the outer trim for the trim off a set of rear handles, but the barrel sat out too far for the trim to go on flush. So from there I decided to remove the barrel from the handle itself which was alot better, but still not 100% happy with the fit as the trim still doesn't sit fully flush. So I'd like to know how others have acheived this. Only other option I can think of is to get a complete set of rear handles and see about fitting those.

    Cheers guys n' gals
    Andy

    CA do a replacement trim for the lock piece. It's a bit pricey may may be what you are looking for, if I understand correctly.

    Thanks for that bud, but I think that's for the lucky E46 owners which have completely different handles. Nothing has ever been that simple on any car I've ever owned haha.

    Thanks again.
