If you want to save your self some time and trouble, just pop the hood and adjust the two rubber hood stops mounted just behind the grille. Unscrewing them a small amount will raise the spot where the hood rests and will keep it off the headlights. Don't overdo're only looking to add a couple mm of clearance, and you don't want to get your fender/hood gap out of whack. This is likely the same procedure your dealership will follow. If the Q/C guy was taking a nap when your car rolled off the line, these adjusters probably got missed.
