Just curious. They seem to be the widest part of the body. Is there a purpose other than aesthetics to those contours?

IMO there is no reliable defense against irresponsible uncaring ignorant door dingers that come in all shapes and sizes. Parking in remote areas is my best last hope. Lot of the new vehicles don't have side body moldings nor offer them. Fortunately most of my door dings are on the body side moldings as they have provided protection.

I've always added body side mouldings to my recent 2 vehicles, and even with that I still get some dings. I just say to myself how much more dings will there be without the side mouldings.

I put mouldings on all my vehicles. On our Pilot, I located the factory mouldings higher than Honda recommends to try to get more protection in the middle of the door.
