    where the corners of the bumper meet the arch and light, it flares out and there is a good 5mm gap

    any idea of why it's doing this and how to sort it out?

    thanks

    the white clips behind the front bumper... mine did this when the front spoiler got caught on a curb and pulled the front bumper... ended up just putting another screw in the arch upwards into the front bumper and it is holding it in perfectly now.

    try and see that there isnt anything that is pushing it out and that the bumper is fitted onto its clips properly before you make any changes or holes to the bumper.

    you got a pic of how it looks now?

    Its probably the locating lugs, the side fixings are a royal effing pita, getting in there is bad enough, but that area has a fixing plate thats about 15 cm's long along each side where bumper fixes to the wing, you may have not fitted this to the wing etc properly & thus cases the bumper to sit proud, have a goosey in there.
