for the handles, I decided to:
1) buy the original black / plastic handles (those for the basic models), the cost was much cheaper than repainting my original handles!
2) keep the rear part of the handles in body color to create the two tone effect.

I've also replaced the rear cover for the keyhole to a fully covered one for the cleaner look (this is the before photo, my X is RHD)

I'm quite happy with the result. The Black / Silver two-tone effect changes when looking at the car from different angles which is kinda cool
