Hi there! Take a look at this picture. Does anyone else have this gap/un alignment? Is this as expected or am I allowed to complain? Feel free to post a picture from your car.

No gap like that in my 2021.

Yeah - I have a gap there too. Was thinking about asking next time I bring it into service, not sure if they could do anything? (took the photo originally because my PCM went into half-German mode, which fixed itself!)

Quite annoying isn’t it?

No gap. Poor quality control. Consult your dealer.

Can't say I really have any gap TBH but now that you point it out there is arguably I suppose a fractional (tiny) difference between left and right of the center line insert but far more subtle here than in yours for sure.

Yes, I see it! It is easier to live with your gap than mine 😅 I wonder if it is possible to adjust or if they have to change the part to fix it. Shouldn’t be like this on a Porsche IMO!

Fairly certain that this is entirely adjustable for any competent interior guy/gal - have done enough uninstall/re-install of these types of parts in the past to know that this should not be a major challenge to fix.

I think I will live with mine though :)

If it's apparent to your eyes, it will potentially remain a constant eyesore for you. Personally, I wouldn't settle for it. Have your dealer's body shop adjust the misaligned section of the dash panel.

I have the same, Panel is in order for exchange - but they told me to not be in hurry to have it fixed (like with the alarm)...
I guess new norms it is with Porsche in NA be happy to have Porsche - maybe the last one also for me love the carpet not the arrogance of the Brand at least in this country.

Thanks for your reply. So Porsche has confirmed that they will change it?

Similar gap in my standard interior MY 21 RWD. Annoying, but not bad enough to have them take apart the interior trim.
