Default GXP door handles - UPDATE - correct part #*

Are your door handles CHROME, or a silver/aluminum? I got the part number for chrome door handles from an AURORA, but in an effort to get the absolute correct part I researched the PN for the GXP door handles.

The PN I have for the GXP is 25695744 and 25695743.

The CHROME from the Aurora is 25695746 (driver).


The GXP are $10 ea. while the chrome are $19 ea.

I'm just confused why there is such a huge price difference if they are both the same exact handle.

I'm waiting on customer service from GMPD to see what PN they give me for the GXP door handle vs what partszoneonline gave me.

Mine are chrome. Of course assuming you are talking about the interior handles.

Yes, interior. Thanks!

The description of the GXP comes up as F-HDL-I/* vs. the chrome which just say F-HANDLE.

I'm trying to figure out what I/* means.

But apparently the GXP handles must be cheaper than those from the Aurora if the guy gave me the correct numbers. Odd.

I just don't want to order handles and get the same plastic ones I have now. That would be annoying.

Pete, the GXP handles are more of a satin chrome than the bright chrome on the Aurora. There is a difference....

Hey Chris! Yeah, I searched for the part number you gave me, then for chits and giggles did the GXP. I noticed the price difference and got curious.

The Aurora handle MUST fit exactly in the Bonneville no problem right? I thought of getting the GXP to be safe because there would be no question on fitment.

If the GXP is not a "true" chrome that would explain the part number difference.

I'm sorry. I had to go look and verify what I told you earlier. They are indeed a satin finish and not chrome. Sorry.

Ok, thanks for checking! They are plastic or metal?

Looking at pics of some GXP handles they look chrome, it was hard to tell until I compared it to the pics of the Aurora handle.

Now to decide what I want. Both would look great. One is half the price.

Metal would be nice.

I did just order the GXP handles to save some dough. I would have spent twice as much on the Aurora ones, and in case I get a GXP shift ****, the handles will match.

So to repeat for those who may need them, GXP handle part numbers are:

25695744 Left
25695743 Right

You'll need two of each number. They are about $11 each.

The bright chrome would have been worth it
