Most 2000GTVs I've seen have the inside door release handle oriented in anything other than the factory installed way, as in the photo. Even my Alfa mechanic rotated his handle 180 degrees saying what a stupid design it was to have to push the handle forward, and not pull it back, to open the door. From a safety perspective, a passenger might even gab the handle to brace for a frontal collision, thereby opening the door. So, personalizing the orientation is certainly understandable.
