DW noticed yesterday that she could get a couple fingers under the plastic scuff/kick panel over the inside of the front passenger door threshold, but that the same part on the driver's side didn't have any gaps.

I tried re-seating the passenger's side, but it seems like it's on there good. Has anyone else noticed this?

It could be a difference in the plastic panels, but after poking around I wonder if the body is different on the driver's/passenger's side.

P.S. I also noticed one of the plastic caps on the bottom of the frunk lid underside came off, but putting it back on took all of a second.

My passenger side had a gap between the plastic at your feet where it meets the trim around the door. The rubber door seal seemed to be completely seated properly. They did fix it somehow at the service center so I would get them to look at it.
