Red face Chose new door cards - Need help deciding which door pull to use

Hello everyone!

So, I'm 99% sure that I'll gradually turn my NA's interior brown/black (a bit darker than tan).
The door cards, seats, carpet and probably the lower dash will eventually be brown, while the upper part of the dash, the uppermost part of the door and the tombstone stay black.
The first part of that conversion will be a set of quilted leather door cards (those: https://www.topmiata.com/shop/carbon...-cards-for-na/) in brown.
I'm definitely going to ditch the stock door handle and pocket, but I can't quite decide between two door pulls/handles:
The black door pull with a polished cap:

Or the polished "airstream"-door handle:

I like the simplicity of the door pull, but then again, in an elegant roadster the airstream-handle may look better, while the black door pull is a bit more race car-ish.
And after all, I am going for the elegant roadster rather than the race car.
I have no space-problem with the stock handle, and the airstream-one doesn't look any larger, so that's no problem.
And the door handles wouldn't be the only polished bit in the car either.
What's your opinion?
What do you guys think looks better?

Thanks in advance,

Max

the airstream handle looks a little out of place. if you could somehow fix that issue, I would do that option over the pull strap.

I've used loop doorpulls now for years and I really like both the look and the function. They are simple, elegant and never get in the way of my elbow or take precision lateral space in the cockpit.

I've always like the look of the door straps that revlimiter used to sell. It's kind of like the leather handle on a guitar amp.
