Style is important because you're writing code for developers to read, not for computers.
When style is consistent, code will look familiar at first sight and it will save any other developer, or you next year, the trouble of first deciphering the syntax before actually trying to understand what it does.
When I see code that's not properly formatted or otherwise inconsistent I immediately assume the developer is lacking in skill and/or professionality and I'm usually right.
It's really easy to keep code consistent, especially with today's tools, and it saves a lot of effort when reading it so why not just do it?
