Default Interior Door Handle alternative

I am looking for an alternative to the shiny "chrome" interior door handles.

Does any know of anything? Specifically on a 2005 WRX.

I suppose that I could paint them, but I'm worried about wear and tear as they (at least the driver's side) are touched several times a day.

Thanks for the ideas. I didn't realize that the different models actually had different finishes on the door handles.

If they don't work, then I'm only out $30.

LOL - I'd offer to sell you mine, but I'm going to hold on to them a while in case I don't like the black.

And I didn't offer mine for the same reason! I have both sets of handles...

Best luck with the very subtle swap!
