    i have recently fitted facelift headlight, but there is a 5mill gap between th bottom of the light on the bumper....
    just wondered what people have used to fill it?

    I had a gap at the rear, indicator area, nothing at the bottom. However, I used black silicone sealant ;-)

    is your bumper sitting straight?

    Could always heat it a little and see if you can bend it a bit to reduce the gap, otherwise rubber strips sound like a good idea
