Default Bumper can't align right.

As I was doing my best trying to fix the previous owner horrid HID wiring.

I noticed my front bumper doesn't sit straight.

Here is a rough picture of what I am trying to describe.





The driver side sits in nice

but following the line and starts to spread out.

When I took the bumper off I noticed that the pass. side bumper support thing (where the 2 13mm nuts attach) is pushed out more than the other side.

Perhaps anyone could no what I am dealing with. Doesn't seem to be any sign of front end damage after measuring.

One of your bumper support stuts is collapsed from an accident. Replace the bad one or shim the bolts a bit.

Looks like your nose panel is super bent, but with your lack of quality photographs, it's really hard to deduce anything.
