    Another item I didn’t catch at delivery. Looks like in one area the lower black plastic trim piece isn’t flush with the bottom of the car. Is this common? Easy fix?

    I had the same thing happen. Just place your hand/palm under it and tap it up with your other hand. It'll snap back into place.

    Looks like it’s doing the same thing closer to the ends right where it meets the front and rear wheel wells but it won’t tap in in those locations. I can actually see the plastic clip in the wheel well that attaches it move up and down so maybe it’s just not a very tight tolerance part.

    Same issue with mine that I didn't catch or may have happened at any point. A couple of quick palm open whacks and it has been good to go for months now.

    Had the same issue on both sides of my car. Luckily a few hits with my fist and they popped back in
