Hi all,
can someone please advise whom sells the trim insert for the outside door handle on the 924 (i think same as 944 from the picture). My handles are fine, but the inserts are stuffed.

Contact Ian at 944online.com, he is the one listing this on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/PORSCHE-944-924-S-OUTER-DOOR-HANDLE-PLASTIC-TRIM-INSERT-NEW-GENUINE-PORSCHE-TRIM/391898370345?epid=782680483&hash=item5b3ef69129:g:JKYAAOSwIWVY99VA&vxp=mtr

but if someone has a 3D printer I guess these could be reproduce.
we could even replace the "fake wood" finish with PROSCHE script!!

I don't know if these have the wood grain, but you can use VW door handles and I'm 99% sure that the inserts are interchangeable. Something like this? Unfortunately you have to buy the entire handle set but for $12... It sure beats $86 for just the inserts and you get the choice of black or chrome.

I was thinking about laser etching "PORSCHE" on new inserts but I imagine Porsche would have a problem with some random person selling something with their name on it. For $12, I may give it a shot on one of my own cars and see what it looks like though.

Given how much porsche 'borrowed' from VW and audi for the 924 and 944 - they probably will fit. for $12, I'll give it a try ! THANK YOU
