Just noticed today after looking at my car as the snow and ice dripped off that the hood and front bumper on my A5 are not square with each other:confused: It's tough to explain but if your looking at the front of the car the gaps where the two upper corners of the grill and the two points in the hood meet are different size (ill put a pick up soon). The gaps where the hood hangs over the headlights are different and the long gaps down both the driver and passenger sides of the hood are also different. Almost like the bumper and hood have been tweaked so that they dont align anymore. Like I said, when I get a sec, I'll post a pic, but in the mean time, anyone else notice this on your cars?

..........And no, I have not hit anything with my car:eek:

OK, I'll have the pic up the first weekend in Jan., I've been crazy busy lately and havent had any time to do it but I'm washing/ waxing the car this week so I'll get the pics up after that. I've been paying more attention the it now and it looks as if the hood is just not alligned correctly. The front bumber is square but the hood looks like its off to the left. I know its not an illusion because the gaps are different along the hood on the front and sides. Pics coming soon, sorry to keep you waiting!!

Sorry for the long wait for the pics of the hood, I got a new puppy and haven't had a chance to do ANYTHING. I still don't have a pic, but I had the car at the dealer for it's 5000 mile service and brought the hood to the service managers attention. He said they would check it out and let me know. Well, after being without my car for 2 days they call and tell me it's done. It took 2 days because parts had to be ordered for Audis factory updates that needed to me done to the car. The final subject of our conversation as I was picking up the car was the hood. He tells me it's clearly miss-alligned but it would need to be fixed at the body shop!! So....fearing that the way the body shop is going to go about fixing it is getting the 2 biggest guys to pull on the hood till it's square again, I've yet to make the appointment to get it fixed. But I get closer to making the call every time I look at it!!!

Pics will be up this weekend after I get it washed!!
