Ah yes, that was my initial notion as well - why did they insist on offering that extra sliver of carbon detail on the sides? I want as much of an OEM look (albeit it being a yoke) as possible...I'm pissed because when I ordered it a few weeks ago they didn't have the option for no side carbon. They made you choose either matte or glossy. They are also 25% off for the time being
But I kept checking the webshop and kept emailing their sales team until there was something that pushed me over the fence to take the plunge, and the option to not include that side carbon - and the 25% off coupon code from the sales team yesterday - helped tremendously (esp in convincing the wife).
