I have to be honest -- I never even noticed the unpainted rockers on my '11 until somebody on this forum complained about them. Granted, Kona Blue was a dark color, and maybe it would be more noticeable on a lighter car, but I don't notice them at all unless I'm specifically looking for them.
Everybody has their own thing; I can't stand cars with turn signals on the outside of the headlights; you can't stand unpainted plastic. Those things are easily changeable in the aftermarket.
