Default Rear Spoiler

Anyone got a pic of their rear spoiler in the "down" position?

on my 2017 Panamera 4 the leading two edges of the spoiler don't seem to sit flush. I've attached a pic of this and i will admit it is a bit of a close up so looks more exaggerated than say when you are stood 1-2m away from the car but wondered if anyone with similar car could share a snap of theirs.

OPC said it may need re-calibrating so are going to book it in. the lower edge / line above the rear lights and the "PORSCHE" logo lines up perfectly. its just the two "tips" if you call it that that stick up a bit. same on both sides. if you "push" down on that section there is obviously "give" there as the whole spoiler mechanism is i guess designed to be flexible on its mounts. it definitely was not like this on delivery so seems like with "use" its loosened up a bit.

Here’s mine (4e-hybrid). Not as pronounced as yours but sticks up a little.

update on this....car went in to have the fuel filler body replaced to remedy the bad fit and stickiness of that. whilst it was in also got them to look at the spoiler. Sorted. somehow, possibly during a s/w update? the spoiler motor calibration had gone awry, technician hooked car up to some laptop went to some program that re-calibrates the spoiler motor positions for the various movements and it now sits how it should. if your spoiler is sitting "high" like the pic i attached next time you have time get it booked into your local OPC and they can sort this pretty easily.

Thanks, NorthernMonkey. Another thing to look out for. Sounds like your OPC have been very helpful.
