Min106,
oh dear, for a car that's renowned for it's tight, even panel gaps this one looks......
...............well, not tight and not even.

I get the feeling that the front wing may well need slight adjustment too!

Please give us a little more info.

1) Has the car been in a wreck?
2) Are the doors hung properly (if they're not, easy to fix)?
3) If crashed, who did the repairs (if they botched the repairs, you may be able to wrangle some compensation from the repair shop)?

Let us know.

Looking at photo number two it looks like an accident damage, so it's a bit harsh to call someone who's worried their car might be bent whinging.

To be honest, I can't tell from the photos, maybe go to a local dealer and compare?

Seriously, the cars been crashed. Why are we looking at a photo of a panel gap on a panel of a car thats been effected by a major front impact.

I feel really sorry for anyone whos had such an accident, but what can be said? If we were being asked to look a a dodgy weld down the middle or something I could understand. Perhaps some information about the accident - "I was driving down the street when the front wheel fell off is it your opinion that my cars a wrong un?" But a panel gap on a deformed car - what do you want us to say - yes its all someone elses fault?

Sorry to be plain speaking, but thats the what I see.

Now if you showed us a panel gap on a car that had no other visible damage, then there might be concern. But the car has been crashed. What are we to think?

I hope you get your car fixed satifactorily. It know it hurts when your pride and joy is damaged, but it can be fixed. We have all been there at one time or another.

Sorry for causeing you offence in my first post.
