You can't buy those handles, as far as I know. They're specific to M Technik BMW's, which were a limited prototype production run for the M3.

Have you called a dealership? Try that.

Have you called Bavarian Auto? Try that.

Have you tried to talk to Geronimo (one of our member with either a M-tek or found the handels and installed them) Try that.

Good Luck,

Les

Gomerino has them. Either he or somebody else once posted the part number and price for them here on the boards.

The door handles actually read "BMW Motorsport" and they should be available from the dealership or Bavauto.

Why are they hard to install? Is it just the black cover over the handle, or the whole door lock assembly? I had to replace my lock cylinder a few months ago, which involved removing the whole assembly. I didn't find it difficult at all. It actually took me longer to code the lock to my key than taking everything apart.
