Does anyone else's headlight not line up perfectly to the bumper

I searched but didn't find much on this topic. I noticed today that my passenger side headlight (around the corner of the light where the turn signal is) does not line up completely well with the bumper edge....if you look rom the side of the car you an see the gap is as much as maybe .6-.7 of a cm. I'm not near the car now or I'd take a picture...anyone else notice this?

I noticed that my headlights vibrate slightly when at a stoplight, not all the time. Has anyone experienced this? Sorry for the hijack.

Pics would help, but most cars I've seen could use a bumper adjustment straight from the factory.

Sorry to bring up an old topic but, what is the proper way to adjust this gap between bumper and headlight.

If you open the hood (follow grille replacement instructions), the torx bolts on the top of the bumper can be loosened, you can then make adjustments to the bumper and retighten.

I've looked very closely at my M3 (daily) and a good friends '11 M3 and both have little areas where they aren't perfectly symmetric or aligned. Neither have been hit and the areas that are off on his are different from mine. It's barely noticeable but it's not perfect.

Would this help for the gap below the headlight that meets the bumper? My bumper has zero gap on the driver side but small gap on passenger side.
