Does the door line above the side blade line up with the line that continues on the lower front panel near the front wheel? I'd be surprised if it does.

Good luck would be interested in what the OPC says/does.
People are more likely to live with things they haven't got :D Actually the lower door line isn't bad it's just the annoying outward bulge further up towards the bonnet lid.

Thanks. Yep, it's not the flaring that concerns me, it's the alignment when cold that isn't quite right.
Have you got a pic?
Cold shots...
Mine looks exactly the same on the passenger side and the car is only a month old ...

I have just sent an email with photos to the OPC and now wait for their response.

just got a reply from the OPC saying that their new and used macan boonet look similar to the one I have. However, they are happy to have a look at the workshop to see if there is an issue here.

There must be many hundreds of owners on this forum and just a fraction have this issue. Surely that demonstrates that our cars are sub-standard?

Put it this way, I would not be aware of (or to look at) this issue if this topic has not come up in the forum.

Maybe not. But it would only be a matter of time before your eyes were drawn to it. Or worse still, the Missus!! 😊 I'll pursue this with my OPC but won't be loosing any sleep over it.

Just for contrast mine looks pretty perfect in this area, pic below.

Are your bonnets straight across the wing.
