why are some chrome door handles $15 and others $45?
 
i have been thinking of ordering a set to match my chrome rear bumper, grill, and running boards. i see some on ebay but the prices vary so much. how can you tell the quality difference from one to the next. Of course the sellers all say that their product is the best. Thanks! :rolleyes:

Are those prices shipped?

A lot of eBay sellers sell things for 15+25 shipping and the same product at a different store is 40 shipped.

I'll play devils advocate here.....for $15, who cares? Spend another $15 in two years if they aren't holding up. Now if you got the $50 ones, different story.

TacoTitan11 05-18-2012 07:35 PM

how tough would they be to remove...we all know how sticky that damn double sided tape can be

They're all the same, buy them and be ready to replace in a year.

TacoTitan11 05-18-2012 07:40 PM

TacoTitan11 05-18-2012 07:45 PM

He's saying think of how much you spend in a day without even thinking about it. $15 is a lunch......don't sweat it.
