Just got my car on Fri and noticed my passenger headlight is raised about 1/8-1/4" higher than the fender as well as having a bigger gap. The drivers side is flush. Am I being reasonable to ask for it be fixed?

I was going to say that you're being overly picky.
But then I saw that last picture. :oops:

Yeah, see if they can adjust that.
The top pic is the drivers side. It's very flush. The last one is the passenger side. I don't necessarily need it to be perfect but I thought that was pretty significant. Is it easy to adjust or will they have to replace the headlight? Reason I ask is because I am getting a PPF and ceramic coating done in a few days and won't be able to bring it to Tesla before than.

Anyone else have these issues? My headlight bottom lip is on top of the bumper. From afar it looks normal but upclose you can tell. Does anyone else have that gap by the bottom corner as well?
