Adjusting the front fascia? or is it the headlights...

I was in a front end wreck about 3 months ago. The shop did a surprisingly good job, the fenders line up nicely, the hood is also lined up great.

The only particular area I notice with any flaw is where my headlamps are. On the passenger side there is virtually no gap between where the headlamp is and the fascia begins. On my drivers side there is a gap about a thumb width that spans from the right side of the headlamp, down and around to the left side of the headlamp.

Is this adjustment needing to be done via the fascia or the headlamps? Can these even be adjusted.

I plan to have some of the fascia apart to add an adm scoop soon so I figured I could do both at the same time.

Sounds like the facia is mis-adjusted.
I'd go back to the body shop and have them fix it right, before you mess with it.
If you screw with it and can't get it right, you have no recourse, they're gonna say YOU did something.
Let the body shop fix it first, they're work should be guaranteed.

Yea take it back. I know on my car there is a slight gap between the headlight (RS) and the front bumper but its only about 1/4-1/8 inch wide.

I was thinking of that. Hoping it isnt a terribly long fix, I live a ways from the body shop now, lol.

Figured I would ask though, I am now educated :]
