Yeah my insurance is paying for everything. They dont know what is causing the gap, last I heard they were trying to drop the headlight 2 cm. The gap tells me that something is likely bent somewhere behind. It seems as if they dont want to take the proper measures to make sure everything is lined up properly.

Yeah, i'm sure they know what the actual problem is if they're any good at what they do. But they're just trying to take the easy way around it, instead of fixing it the right way.

Hope it all gets sorted out. Id be pissed if I let a shop do a job wrong. Me being the perfectionist that I am wouldn't take it till it was right. Like when I needed a new fender when some lady backup into it. It sat at the body shop for a week and a half. I wasn't happy with the paint work they did and made them do it over. They thought I couldn't tell the difference in color. BTW this was auto body America.
