Hey mate, maybe the car had a prang in the past, it mite look even to ur eye, but a couple of mm here and there can put it off....try adjusting the bonnet, and hav a look at d front where the headlights are to see any signs of the front end being pushed up or back....hopefully might solve the problem...

Yeh its true.. just takes tiem and effort to get it aligned up right..
I had to trim a bit of the eyelids so it matched teh side eyebrows..

also u mite wana chek 2 see if your parts are taiwanese, coz i know that if you get the taiwanese parts, they dont line up exactly as the originals would...but u can get it there with abit of mucking around like SIK3LT said, and maybe even using spacers or washers between ur nuts and bolts mite help bring it up a lil.....
Goodluck with it champ
