I have the same color and couldnt find a match. Even if you do find a match it still wont be perfect due to panels naturally fading overtime. I did find these that come real close to matching the grey part of the interior and doesnt look to bad in my opinion once installed. However I will say that these door handles do work....but they have issues like they wont come with instructions, you need to be SUPER careful drilling out the plastic rivets, not all the screws will catch and hold to the panels plastic, and lastly the little plastic piece connecting the actual handle to the metal bar will break right away. So re-use the original ones. There are work arounds to all these problems though. Theres youtube to find out how to put these on, just go super slow drilling out the rivets and check often. It does not take much at all to remove enough plastic to remove the original handle. You only need 3 or 4 screws in the right spots to secure the new handle in place. I used some superglue for attaching and placing the other screws that were close to working. The little plastic piece connecting the handle to the door mechanism is easy to remove from these new handles, to easy, and thats why they break after 2 uses. The stock ones will come out, but are made out of very durable plastic and will be a pain to remove. All 4 doors took me about an hour and a half to do and the color is close enough that unless you look and observe it, you would think its stock. Hope this helps. If I remember ill try to take a pic of my car tomorrow and show what they look like.

Thank you very much, that's extremely helpful. Do you know what is the actual name of the color?

I believe its just called grey with chrome or something like that. But here are 2 pics of mine. They dont match 100%, but close enough that it doesnt look out of place in my opinion.

I believe the darker interior color is actually called Dark Slate gray - but again, your build sheet should tell you that.

Did you take 2 minutes to pull your build sheet yet?
