As a new 75 Owner , and now looking at every other 75 and ZT that i see , i find the gap between the front bonnet edge and the front panel seems huge! seems to distract from the overall look of the car.

Is there an explanation for this , or is it a 'design feature' ? Can the gap be made more minimal?

Appologies if this subject is duplicated elsewhere.

my own car is a 2005 (05) Conn SE Tourer CDTi in Ski Blue (sexy!)

Hi,

Yeah, mine's the same. Apparently it's a cheats way of fixing the 'bonnet not secured' sensor light that comes on at speed. It can be fixed, I haven't done it yet, and yes it does take the look away from the car.

If you look through the Pictures of your 75/ZT thread you'll see a close up of mine. Does it look like that?

There's a couple of things around this.

There is an interview with Richard Woolley on the club web site which explains why the shutline goes over the top of the grille instead of incorporating it. In addition Alex on here has also given some informtion on closing up certain shutlines on the front which do make the model look a bit 'tighter' if you know what I mean.
