I hesitated to buy this at first because I didn't know if I should buy metal or plastic. I ended up with the Plastic handle in black and I love everything about it. It has a textured sandpaper feel. I like that. I did not reuse the factory rolling pins, I went to my local ace hardware and purchased appropriate replacement rolling pins that are longer than OEM to accommodate for the added thickness of the V2 handle. The new handle is much tighter than OEM latch, which was always very loose in my opinion. I can open the latch at highway speeds and the vent doesn't fly open. I'm beyond happy with this piece. I hope this stays here for a long time.
