I'm more concerned about seeing the tooling marks in the middle. I think they could have done something about that. I need to get them outside in the sunlight to know for sure.
I noticed that too. I know some people like the machined look. Me personally, I would've like to have seen the center section polished to a mirror finish (could still be done) or some chrome inlay. Personal preference I guess, just like seeing a good bead of weld or grinding it smooth.
