The problem is that I can't see how the issue has occurred as everything else lines up including the middle of the bonnet. Am I being fussy or is this the norm with a clamshell bonnet? The close up photos looks worse than the reality but it measures around a 1.5mm difference between the 2 sides.

Comments welcome as I can't see how any adjustment can be made without affecting other parallel parts.
A similar issue was first raised in June 2017 https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums...2/#post1813362 and even earlier on the French forums. Yours does look worse but could be due to the angle you took the photo.

Or it's a mix of both (bumper + bonnet).

It feels that Peugeot has this issue with other models as well. Take a look at this screenshot from the new 208 official promo video. Well that is one out of line bonnet.
That's really poor for such a new model, and to use that in the promo video isn't a great advert for build quality and tolerances!

The bonnet alignment trouble has been around since the new 3008 launched back around 2017, with some cars looking OK or worse, whilst others didn't. I've got the official TSB for the fix on my own car, and I have to say, I'd rather have a bodyshop look at it, rather than my local 'trained' Peugeot dealer fitters. It is quite involved a fix and I'm not sure they'd get it right first time either!

As Dautres says, there is also an issue to do with the angle and the way that you look at the front of the new PSA design bonnet/bumpers, with it looking more out of line if you look from certain angles. My current 3008 seems OK, but occasionally the bonnet gap looks slightly wider at one end, when I glimpse it, from an unusual angle.

TSB??? So there is a service bulletin out for the car to fix this? Do we know what it says?

So today I went to the body shop in St Albans. Car was booked in straight away and disappeared into the workshop within 3 minutes. After another 10 minutes someone came to collect me so I could show them what the issue was.

They prodded and poked and sounded surprised when I said I had read online that changing the bonnet or the bumper had not fixed the problem on other 3008's. I was then told to wait back in the reception area.

20 minutes later they asked me to inspect the car. Got to say I was delighted. They had worked some magic on the bumper and then had to move the headlight as the move had created a gap around the headlight.

Photos are before and after. Still not perfect but 10 times better than it was. They said it was the best they could do on a bumper that had no adjustment.

That is much better. I cannot believe this left the factory QC with such a visible wide gap.

I would much rather trust this sort of work to a bodyshop, than allow a 'trained' fitter at the Peugeot garage to tinker with trying to resolve it.
