Default Removing trim on GM6/GC6 Imprezas

I was wondering if anybody has removed the little half tube trim that sticks out at about 1/2 way up the GM6/GC6 (hope I got that right for the car code anal guys) Impreza 2.5rs.
as seen below:


I know all the Japanese GC8 and European GC8 cars don't have it.
Why did we get it here in North America?
And would it be expensive to remove?

There are tiny holes that hold the moulding in place. Unless you want to get them filled I wouldn't remove them.

Thanks for the warning imprezaboi

But still I ask:
Why did we get it here in North America?
And would it be expensive to remove?

Removing them would not be expensive at all, infact you can do it yourself. Just have to remove the door cards and such to get to them. No idea why they put it on over here, maybe to save us from slamming into poles and such and damaging the doors? The mouldings saved my doors life a couple of times.
