Dealer Installed Roof Rails...

I originally ordered my car with the roof rails but for some reason it fell off the order and came without them. So, I finally got around to having them installed at the dealer, at their cost of course. I picked up the car today and noticed they didn't paint the insert strip on the roof that the rail mounts to. So, there's a black strip about an inch in the back and 4 or 5 inches in the front. I know they're going to have to take the whole thing apart again to paint the strip, so I'm kinda torn as to whether or not I should just leave it.

Here's a pic of it and also a pic of a white car they had in the showroom for comparison. Lemme know what you guys would do.

well it doesnt really look like its "wrong" nobody except you would notice. You just need to think to yourself, is it worth the aggravation? AND, the fact that the dealer would be touching your car and possibly messing something up? If it were me, i'd be over it, and just deal..

but at the same time, they should have done it right

its the first thing i noticed but then again i went through this too.. i dont think it looks that bad. it would bother me that they were cheap and tried to get away with not painting it but then id think about what they would wreck or scratch taking it all apart again.

looking at it again, id have them do it right....
