Default Grille misalignment?

Howdy

New to the forum, just wondering if anyone else has visible 'clips' when looking directly down at the chrome trim on the bottom of the grill. Right around where the chrome meets the grill I have a 1-2mm gap and can see the clips holding the chrome to the grill. It's only noticeable if I look directly down, as if I was attempting to look behind the license plate / plate holder or something.

There are a couple directly under the Cadillac badge just to the left and right. I am just wondering if maybe my grill or chrome is loose or possibly the car had been backed into or something.

I would stroll the dealer lots when they are closed and compare fit and finish. That would be what dealer service dept would do to determine if it was normal or not.

Thumbs up Thx

Thanks for the response!

I think I will definitely take a look around the dealership when I take the car in to have an oil change or tire rotation. I'll ask them if they have any 2015 models with similar mileage and inquire about the possibility this might just be regular wear and tear due to the massive number of unavoidable potholes in my city. Perhaps it was somehow jarred loose because of said potholes, if it's even out of alignment to begin with.

Thanks again

if car still under warranty have techs look at it and decide. It will also be do***ented if there is a question sometime towards the end of the warranty.
