Mine is too since it got hit. When I got the car it was doing that though. I just took the bumper and all the hardware off, put it back on and lined it up and it was fine.

Re: rear bumper

This is what mine looks like now:


When I first got it the passenger side did look a little off but when I took the bumper off to put on the rear lip I noticed that it wasn't clipped in place properly. I'd suggest to take the bumper off and make sure it's clipped in on the side correctly. I don't really have a good pic of the side when it was not clipped on properly so I can't really show a before and after type deal. There is still a gap but I guess that's as good as it's going to get.
