2020 MX - Falcon Wing Offset = Chipped Paint?

I have a 2020 MX. 4k miles. The passenger side falcon wing door is slightly proud (sticking out past the front passenger door) - I dont think this is really an issue other than the fact the leading edge of the door seems to stick out enough to receive impacts from stones / salt from the road. I noticed that there is already paint chipping. Anyone else have this? Would this be something covered under warranty? I will mention this to Tesla during the next service appointment.

(image attached). Thanks.

Looks like the door needs some serious adjusting. Adjusting the door should absolutely be covered by warranty. I think that they should also fix the paint chips, but not as sure about that.

I'm with Bigriver. Definitely should be adjusted under warranty. Has it always been this way?

First time I noticed it, can't be sure if it was like this on day 1. The driver side falcon wing door is flush with the driver door. I will have this looked at during the next Tesla service appointment.
