Am I overreacting on this panel gap?

I took home delivery of this Model X a month ago so I was unable to do an inspection before accepting delivery. Right away I thought the trunk was ajar while it was on the delivery truck, and it looked even worse when I saw it up close.

It looks like the entire rear passenger quarter panel is crooked, causing a widening gap along the trunk and the top area. I took it to the SC and they said it was within spec and I'd have to pay to get it fixed myself. I find it hard to believe this is within spec - should I just let it go?
