    Hi Guys,

    This is the pic of new Red Beauty which I checked as apart of PDI.

    Rear doors had some panel gaps. Is this normal?

    See the image. It may not be clear. From distant angel one could see the inner side.

    Hi,
    If you feel there is difference in gap on both doors, then it might be some alignment issue. Ask them to correct it before delivery. I had alignment issue with driver side door, which was corrected later.

    Congrats on the new car! :)

    Can't make out much but the newer cars are definitely "tighter" when it comes to clearances of body panels.

    Is it just one door at the rear or both? The gaps looks a little strange, must be alignment issues.

    Show it to the dealer and get it rectified before the delivery

    Also one advise. If its not too much off and not causing issues then don't bother with it. TASS/FASS or any ASS have reputations of causing another issue fixing one. And if at all you plan to get it fixed, get that done in front of you in their workshop. It will cause a little pain on your end but will be worth it in long term.
