2013 Dusk edition Front splitter with gaps

I've been talking to GM regarding gaps on the front splitter on my 2013 Dusk edition. Looks like they are coming to conclusion saying that it is how it is designed. I find that hard to believe. Camaro built to use parts that are designed to not fit?

I already took it to the dealer and they have already replaced it with another one, but the gap is still there. I'm having hard time figuring out what I can do to get it fixed.

Could anyone here post some pictures of your front splitter if you have 2013 Camaro dusk edition? I've posted mine as a reference.

double sided tape or emblem tape.......could make it closer maybe of it were pressed into place hard, not everything can be perfect......, look and see how it is mounted, maybe there is a place where you could reem out the plastic and hold it in tighter, or place another mounting screw.....

The front splitter on the Dusk is the same as the 1LE.

Here is a thread discussing the gap and it has pictures:

There appears to be a TSB for it

The dealership replaced mine, for what it's worth. Fit is better, whether it was the part and/or installation.

there is a tsb, but it calls for glueing the ends to the fascia. another members dealer used fuzer glue and put a bolt on the spliter and then drilled a hole and put a nut on the inside and he said it was holding to this day just fine.

Mine is just like that. I took it as that's just the way it was designed.
