i was going to get the chineese door handles. They're less then 60 bucks and from i hear from some people who have them they work great. I was all set to buy some and then i coudn't get a hold of the guy who was selling them on this forum. Check vortex. They're direct bolt on. As cool as the audi handles are it takes a bit of bodywork. Where these need no modification to work.

Where were you able to find a set? Any info would be appreciated, as my handles have been giving me a bit of trouble this winter. Thanks!

The old Porsche handles had all the same problems the VW handles did... with one more problem. They're far more expensive to replace. As far as I know they don't bolt up, could be wrong though.

I have a friend with Chinese handles and he loves them. There were a couple sets on ebay last I looked.

Yeah the Chinese handles (as well as the Chinese trunkplate and taillights) are usually up on Ebay from time to time. If I'm not mistaken, it's usually one guy based out of Hong Kong who posts those auctions. He'll occaisionally also post up a set of fog lights as well.

check out this post:

mk3 style handles
"These are Chinese VW Mk2 Jetta handles that works like Mk3 handles. That is why they work on Mk2 Golf and Jetta. Hope this clarifies a lot of the confusion. "

If I had a mk2, I would def get these. hope this helps.
