I was looking at one of the special edition versions in a dealers showroom a couple of days ago. What I saw was along the rear edge of the drivers door. Where the rear quarter panel meets with the rocker panel. The rocker panel was about 1/32" forward as compared to the quarter panel. The passenger side was even.

Is this easily corrected by loosening a few fasteners and adjusting the panel? Or perhaps indicative of a tougher problem to solve?

Nothing lines up with my doors.I really don't think there are any adjustments like there used to be.

Not sure if this is what you are talking about but I pulled this from another post

From GM Servicelink:

EXTERIOR DESIGN
The front top of the rocker molding is designed to be outboard of the bottom of the front lower door by approximately 13mm . This is a design feature and does not require adjustment .

No, not that. If you look at the door gap to the rear quarter panel and follow that down to where the quarter panel meets the upper extension of the rocker panel, the forker panel is shifted forward on the driver side and even wight he quarter panel on the passenger side.
Simple adjustment or more involved?

Anyone have an issue with gap between front passenger fender and passenger door? I have already brought my torch red z51 to the dealer because the gap is too tight and when I open and close the door the 2 panels hit each other in the center. They fixed it about 3 weeks ago but it again this w/e. Is it easy fix or something I should be concerned about?
Other then this I love the car with just over 1,000 miles

Doesn't sound right to me. Gaps should be even and nothing should touch or rub when opening or closing doors, hood, etc.

With 3000+ miles on RedHot there are no gap issues and gaps have not changed since I picked her up at the Museum.

There is another post in this forum from someone with exactly the other problem on the passenger's door in the area you describe. For him, the spacing is too large, and there is a gaping hole there. He said he is going to have his dealer rehang the passenger's door.

One is too close, and one is too far. I wonder what the manufacturing standard deviation is for the gap size in that particular spot...

Can you folks put up pictures of the areas you are describing, so we all can get a feel for the fitment issues you are talking about?
