There is no benefit to billet. A cast part can be made to look just as shiny and "high end" at a lower cost. Casting tooling on a part this complicated will pay for itself at relatively low volumes. Xylan coating actually makes more sense on a cast part as anodize doesn't look as good on porous parts.
