They are not chrome but aluminium. You can polish the anodizing off and have them re anodized or polish the aluminium or look for a used set at a wrecking yard in good condition. I don't think anyone makes them as repops.

Anodized aluminum can't be sanded/ polished like the stainless trim on the lower part of the console or exterior window trim, so be careful. I've found that a good cleaning with diet Coke and a blue scotch-brite pad, followed by a detergent wash then rinse, makes most of these look a lot brighter.

Re-anodizing is possible but I have no experience with that.
