Certainly most Highlanders do not have these white accents. But there are a few examples and the three with VIN details are all St Louis, non-promo package Highlanders (including mine) - see the last few posts on the plaid k5 thread here for some interior shots (posts 209-220): Since my blue blazer had a rear quarter panel replaced I dismissed the white wheel tubs as an addition - the face of the rear step was also white.

The smoking gun if you will is the pic from an original paint survivor of a jack decal upon the white paint of a rear wheel tub as shown here: since these decals were not reproduced until recently and only available from member IronCanine (big thanks Brad!).
