Anybody know why the B-pillars (behind the opened doors), door jambs, and interior sills are simply ordinary Oxford White? I am not expecting the metallic application in every area (like the engine bay), but I was expecting a bit more "glitter" application.

I know I shouldn't compare, but my 2001 BMW 740i has an Oxford Green Metallic finish everywhere except the engine bay and the spare wheel well. I guess my expectations were a bit high.
My Yellow Blaze is the same. The door jambs are the basic base colour and the exterior is of course the full tri-coat. I don't mind though, of course I notice but at shows the doors are closed and no one else probably cares.

Better than the old Escapes though, where the underside of the hood and the engine bay were different colors entirely.
