Door handle upgrade

Does anyone know what door handles, both interior and exterior, will fit a mk1 ford focus?
looking to modernize the look a little bit and was kind of looking at the 2008 exterior door handles and for the interior i really liked the mk1 rs interior door handles.
wondering if they'd work or what other options are available.

Yeah I got power door lock actuators installed when I bought my alarm system. I got tired of people in Lakewood/Tacoma messing up my keyholes by jabbing screwdrivers and stuff in them.

I forget the exact model but it is a viper alarm from best buy. Nothing too fancy.

jw
in some ways id just like to do the power conversion but in reality it doesn't do that much for you in a 2 door, and all i know is when they get called because someone locked their keys in their car cops hate when they have to unlock manual locks, they prefer electronic because there easier, food for thought.
then there is weight as insignificant as it is.

my big thing is i want the rs interior door handles i think it cleans it up a lot but i think you have to replace the entire door panels to do so. the door handles i can just paint if i really want to, i was just hoping something else could fit.

Search old threads for the details, I remember people switching for Mazda handles that were a match & painted as well.
