2012 Focus Titanium - vent trim ring glare in door mirrors

After purchasing my 2012 Focus Titanium, I noticed that there was a constant glare in the door mirrors which was coming from the silver trim ring around the vents in the dash close to each door. These vents are at the same height as the door mirrors. I thought at first it was just glare from the sun but soon realized the glare was there even on cloudy days. I fixed the problem by removing the vents and replacing them with vents from a Focus SE model. These vents do not have the silver trim ring thus no glare. The vents are the same colour as the other vents but without the silver ring so they blend in with the dash. The other vents in the centre of the dash do not have silver trim rings so it is a mystery why Ford installed the silver trim rings on the vents closest to the doors.
