Default Door Panel Reflector

Really, $40 - $50 for a plastic reflector?

Anyone know of a less expensive source?

Over the years, a lot of sports cars have been built by raiding the parts bin so to speak. My Brit cars are examples. From what I have learned, GM went a different route with the C5. Most of the car is unique as parts go. I guess they figure that is worth a premium price. I bet the reflector won't be found on a Chevy Cavalier??

But I agree, look for a used one. The difference between new and used C5 parts is dramatic to say the least.

If you want to try something different, I think JW Motoring offers an LED, lighted reflector mod. However, I'm not sure if the mod comes with the modified reflector or just the LED lights.

Try Marc at Vettnuts, always parting out cars. Also you can try the f/s section of this forum and find someone parting a car out. Just my 2cents, L8R ZFLASH
