I got my Voyager at the end of the summer, and only have 4k + on her.
Most of the time there are no issues with reflection or glare.
But, when it does catch the sun just right it can be pretty severe.

I plan on waiting to see what it is like in better and sunnier weather. But, I can understand why someone would want non-reflective speaker trim.

There's a "right" color? Mine is black and dark gray. It has no color...

IL Vaquero...

That's why I want to see a set of stock ones first. I may not like the finish either.

IL Vaquero....

That's cool... we have plenty of time to worry about it. I have no opportunity to see a Vaquero where I am in Nevada. Unless I see one at a local gas station, since it is 20 degrees and snowing I doubt if that will happen...

I do know I can live without the chrome ones and had planned to get Vaquero ones before now. My oldest daughter knew I was not wild about all that chrome and told me about the black Vaquero ones. But she quit her job with the dealer I bought it from last July. She was a service manager there and moved to Texas also. No more good discount

I did not look at a Vaquero the day I bought it even though there were a ton of them in there. They did not have a trunk so I was not interested at looking at them. What can I say? I am a trunk and trailer man... And boy does it pull my trailers well... better than the Venture did. Hills mean nothing to it.

Here's an interesting fact.....Kawasaki changed the finish on the gas tank trim panel on the 2013 Vaquero. It's now a smooth matt black finish...however I think I could have mine taken to an auto body shop and have it refinished for less than Kawasaki wants for that new 2013 part
