Door handle trim - non chrome?

Hey guys, does anyone know if you can order/get the door handle trim pieces in body colour match and not chrome? (see pic)
I'm trying to de-chrome my car slightly.
Thx!

The US spec GLA250s come with body colored door handles… the GLA45 comes with the chrome and body color stripe.

Thanks for the info SSBGLA45! I'll look into ordering a set from the states to get rid of my Canadian chrome ones.

I have a US 2016 GLA 250 and they are chrome even though I have the Night pack. It's weird but the top of the handles and the rear trunk trim and bumper guard are silver. Probably will end up getting them wrapped;

My 2015 GLA250 in Polar Silver has door handles with chrome on top and a stripe of Polar Silver below.

Yep, I have the same chrome-topped handles on my 2016 GLA, but I like the chrome. Elimination of chrome is a cost-saving measure on most cars. If you cover the chrome you are essentially making your car look less expensive.

Does anyone know if the CLA door handles are the same spec as the GLA door handles? I am looking at carbon covers on amazon but the only GLA ones dont have the induction hole option for the touch sensor. But the CLA version of the cover's do.
