I don't want to be an alarmist, but something very strange is going on with your front panel. The side line and top of the guard line are supposed to meet and then run along the top of the front, but your side line is too low ...

Hi Pete,

If I understand you correctly, you are saying the front bumper is hanging too low and I can see it is at least a cm down. I will check if this is because the mounts are bent or some other reason.
No I was not talking about the front bumper but the swage/body line/crease that runs from the back of the car through the doors and front guard panel.

It should meet the top of the guard line and the run along the top most line of the nose panel. Yours does not ...
Pete
[edit:]But yes your bumper does point down too ... easy fix I assume [/edit]
