I noticed that my 2011 Evora that I’ve had for 3 months has a slightly misaligned bumper on the right side compared to the left where it is flush when compared to the other body panels. See attached pictures. Not sure it has always been like that and I just noticed it now or if it is new due to my scraping the car on the driveway. I know that the car was in a low speed accident hitting a mailbox in the left front side before I bought it.


The scraping has become daily since I installed a sho n sto license plate holder maybe 1-2 months ago. It has enough force to slightly bend the license plate (see picture) but I thought that since the car itself isn’t scraping just the sho n sto tube and plate it wouldn’t be a big deal. I didn’t want to do something that will damage that car though so figured I get people’s opinions. Thanks.

IIRC, there's an attachment point right where those panels meet, and you should be able to adjust the gap from underneath with the undertray removed. Or you might be able to reach it through the wheel well with the fender liner removed.

Repeated pushing upwards from scraping the Sho-N-Sto could possibly tweak the bumper cover alignment. I noticed after adding one to my car that I tend to scrape much more often now. Crazy that adding that small amount of material under the front middle is all it takes.

If your driveway has a rolled curb like mine, you might consider getting a Bridjit.
