    DB788A79-62DE-437C-98DB-1F46C4FD2AE7.jpeg Wondering if this gap is normal amongst these cars. I haven’t measured with a caliper but this looks very large. I haven’t had a dsm in a bit either and don’t remember it being this large.

    It looks fairly normal to me. How does the rear of the hatch line up with the fenders?

    That’s the largest gap on the vehicle which seemed excessive to me. All the other body gaps look normal. There are no alignment issues but I don’t remember it being that spaced from all the dsms I’ve had. Everything is symmetrical and feel I’m being paranoid but figured I’d still ask. It’s been a while since my last and just pay more attention to detail. Thanks for the replies fellas.

    It looks normal to me as well, but I guess we could all measure it with a ruler or calipers and compare. I think it's almost pinky-width but will need to measure to be sure. Hopefully I wont forget tomorrow!

    Looks about right to me also. Check fitment on the quarter and the edge of the hatch. If that lines up, you're good to go.

    Aight so I tried measuring my gap in 3 spots, and these are the numbers I got, in milimeters (sorry y'all gotta get on the Metric bandwagon soon!). Behold my amazing Paint skillz:
