Mini F56 owners - Does your car have this gap between the dashboard and door seals?

Greetings all, ;)

I have lately received my new F56 and noticed the following gap:

Do you have a similar gap or maybe a smaller/bigger one? If you do, could you please upload a picture?

I doubt this gap came from factory. At first I suspected that an improper aftermarket installation of reverse parking sensors might have caused this, but since I have seen two additional ones with the same gap, I am unsure.

The ones at the dealer's showroom experienced no gap, but if I put my finger there it is obvious there is no permanent contact between the dashboard and the door seals.

Is it purely an aesthetic fault or does it have additional implications regarding the correct technical and mechanical operation of the car?

Thanks! :)

My suggestion would be to discuss with the service manager your major concern of the work being done on the dashboard. I would ask that they have the most senior and experienced technician who does the repair. Again, highlight your concern so they take special care and interest and of course review the work once completed with the service manager.
