Adjusting Hood

So I am kinda lost at this point. Body shop claims the hood can't be adjusted anymore. Plus I am being a bit anal but I manged to adjust a bit but then the plastic rivet for the hood latch bracket snapped. and I got aggravated.

What I have found is.

1. Adjusting the bump stop + the front hood latchs brings it to proper height to line flush with the edge of the fender.

Problem with number 1 is then the sides of the hood and the fender, the hood now sits too high.

Basically how do I adjust the height at that point.

2. in the picture below, part # 41317173599 & 41317173600 (Number 2 in the diagram) they don't seem to go anywhere. The front of the fender seems to leave a gap between the headlight, hood, and fender. (I'll take pictures tomorrow) that part seems to be sitting above the headlight, I was almost wondering if this should be sitting in between the lip of the headlight to kind of hold down the fender but I am not sure.



I think once I can get the hood issue resolved I'll rip off the bumper and adjust the bumper carriage to eliminate the gap in it's entire form!

Someone help me out here.

Garage List
I just traded my 07 X5 for a 2013 M3 and was very surprised at the wide gaps between the hood and fenders/bumper. I don't know if you can adjust the fenders inward toward the engine to close that gap. I notice it has expansion clips instead of regular bolts since it's plastic. I guess I'll try today.

The dealer fixed the driver-side hood pin not latching, but I still don't like how the front points of the fenders aren't lining up with the corner of the hood. 84k and this is happening? I would think it shouldn't have left Germany like this. Oh well. Time to get my hands dirty and make it right myself.
