Has anyone ever seen chrome or polished stainless steel covers for the door pillars? Mine are dull black - not polished. I know you can buy similar protectors for the door handle cups.

Exactly so; many thanks for this and I will explore further to try and avoid an overseas purchase if possible.

Mine were weathered dull black on a 2013 SE Nav. Bit of autoglym and elbow grease and they polish up to a nice shine.

Thank you and I'll give it a try. After enquiring with the company in the USA the Captiva and Antara door pillars do not match unfortunately.

Surprised the don't fit as the Captiva and Antara are supposed to be the same. Try linseed oil or heat with a hair dryer or use smooth peanut butter to bring them back to black

Like you, I thought they were the same - good job I asked first. When you look on eBay at the Chrysler pillar trims they look fine and link the top and bottom trims without being flash. Ah well.............
