Hood fitment?

Hey everyone. I just picked up my ST tonight and was looking over it in my garage. Does the hood fit flush with the front bumper or does it sit a little high? Mine seems to be sitting a little high and even when I adjusted the hood to sit lower it still doesn't seem to be lining up correctly. Is this normal?

Thanks. That at least makes me feel better. My car had a few issues upon arrival so I'm happy to know this isn't another one.

I can top that. Mine was shipped with only half of my back seat and as I was driving it home from the dealership I noticed they put the wrong colored sun roof cover in, it's light grey. So much for quality control. Lol

No, that's just the excuse some dealers use to cover for the factory inadequacies.

Off topic, much?

The ST has a 2.0 EB engine.
