Broke Driver side door handle

Well...

This morning I got up to go to work and unlocked the car as usual and went to open the door and it didn't budge (Frozen I guess). Me being impatient I pulled a little to hard on the handle and I snapped it right off. I now have to get into the passenger side door to open the driver door and ontop of all that it looks ugly.

Any suggestions on installing and where to buy this from?


Thanks again!!


Edit: I just found this. Anything else guys?

However, that link only has the chrome handles, I want the regular black.

I think Eurostyle had one but someone scooped it aleady. If you want the original BMW part (p/n: 51218245461) you can buy it from here:
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...&siteid=214672
They ship USPS Air from Maryland.

Make sure you check the dealer price as well with the exchange rate it may be comparable.

Mine broke off like 2 weeks ago. I bought it of Eurostyle for $50. the best way to get it out is to take the inside door panel off. Dont bother going from the side of the door throught that small rubber opening cause there is a safety lach that you will not be able to get to. Trust me i messed around with mine for 1.5 hours, then i said **** it and took the door panel off.

Very easy to change, once you ger the panel off. Just the matter of sliding the metal bar that holds the handle assembly in place. It slides out with breaze.

If you need help i'll be more than glad to help you out!

Im still confused. BoostedMx by your description it sounds like the outside door handle broke off. However by the picture you posted clearly shows interior door handle.

Which one is it?
