Default Show & Tell

Let's get a new thread to show off our Auras.

My '09, just about to hit 36K miles. Still looks as good as the day I brought her home. Paint is holding up very well. As soon as the spring is here, I will take my random orbital to her. Lots of spider webbing and a few minor scratches.

'09 Aura XE 2.4, Convenience and Preferred Packages, Sunroof, 17" Alloys.

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: Show & Tell

You folks sure do have some sharp looking Aura's. Great pics. Nice to know I am not the only one that goes to great lenghts to keep a car clean. I at least wash mine once a week. And just as soon as I do it always rains the next day. I have a shop I can park one car in. That is where I keep my Aura. Wish I had a garage or at least a carport so all the vehicles could stay clean.

I have a question. In the picture of the silver or grey Aura that has the chrome outside door handles. I know that on some of the XR's they come factory. I often think about getting some aftermarket ones for my car. This may sound like a stupid question. Do you have to replace the entire door handle or does the chrome snap over the existing OEM handle. I have really never looked it up to see how it works. If it just snaps on it would be great. But if you have to replace the entire door handle is it a difficult project? Just asking.

Again great looking Aura's.

Hey Aurafan,
I believe your talking about my Aura.I was thrown for a bit because my car is actually bronze but looking at the photos it does look silverish.
Those door handles are aftermarket as I also own the XE. I don't remember if I got them through e-bay or Amazon.
They are just high strength plastic and they overlay the existing handle.

Kind of cheesy with two sided tape, but Ive had them for years now and I also wash my car like once a week and they have been great. I believe they were made for the Malibu so theres a slight variation in fit which only you will notice.
We also own a Black Aura XR and that does have the factory silver handles.
Just do a search in E-bay you should find them easily.
Ciao

Default Re: Show & Tell

I got the chrome overlays from ebay & am happy with them. They are holding up very well so far. Here's what I ran across though: The first set shipped were not deep enough to cover the entire handle so I complained & the seller then sent a set that was deeper & fit fine. Definitely cheaper & easier than changing out the handles for the real thing.

Thanks for the info on the door handles. I had no idea they overlay the existing ones. They look factory. My XE is black with chrome trime so I thought they may look pretty good. I am going to check the web for some prices.

Just looked up the chrome door handles on ebay motors. If you don't mind me asking. How much did your chrome door handle covers cost? B/C just glancing at prices real quick on ebay looks like they run $30.00 to $90.00. If I decide to order them I just want to make sure I am not getting ripped off.

Thanks

The design of the Aura's headlamp housing prevents it. The cup of the reflector and the cap that sits over the bulb makes it seem like it was made with HID's in mind. Almost identical to the design on my 2001 Lexus IS300.
