Are there any members who suffer from a bonnet that bulges?
On the sides, the panel gaps are relatively normal but in the middle there is a few millimeters difference on my car.

When you close the hood, are you really sure it' closed? Because there are 2 hood locks (left & right), when I close mine, I press manually a bit harder on those locations to make sure the hood is fully closed. (not sure if this is the issue)

That looks to me like the bonnet is not shut properly, or not adjusted correctly. I have to give an extra push down on mine after closing, (looks like yours until pushed down) always the left hand side. Worth checking if not already done so.

Facing the windshield, I need to push slightly harder on the left side to get the second latch to catch. If that side is sticking up for you, it might be worth the effort to check.

This I have also but in my case the sides are in line, it is just the middle that is higher than expected.
I will check with the dealer if there is a solution.

Right, so if neither side was clicked in, the dash would throw an error, no? … in another words, when you open the hood from inside, the dash lifts up, as both sides are open.

As you said both sides open when you hit the release, and will throw an error, but when closing if only the sensor side is secure and the other side is still open (lifted) then no error will display.

I can't remember if it was on this forum or somewhere else but Ive seen a step guide for adjusting the height of the catches somewhere. The plastic covers come off the latches on the hood side. You can then wind the latches in or out for adjustment. Sorry I can't remember the post but I have definitely seen it done.

This fix might also be relevant to your issue.
