I had to replace my driver side too. Bottom tabs a a bitch but you can take a pair of shears and cut the tabs down/off from the inside and make it easier (your not reinstalling the original handle, so break it).
Ordered my replacement part from FredBeans (forum sponsor) and it came in unpainted black. It was not textured and did not need sanded. Local Subaru dealership body shop painted it for me for $30.
