I have a question about door trim and dashboard connection. It is ok or it is crooked? LHD car

you can see that door trim line is much lower thank dashboard line.

On the opposite site it looks better. How about your cars?

The door card is easier to adjust than the dash.. it could just be off slightly after a refitting? The door card that is.

I was thinking the same, there's a groove that the door card slips into along the top, and it's easy to not fully seat the door card into that groove, which will make it sit crooked.

Take the door card off and refit it, paying attention to the top.

Before ya do it watch a youtubes on it. BMAC or something like that is the guy I tend to watch before I try it. He's clear, concise and does it the right way

Take the car back to the bodyshop that did the paintwork...  they probably mounted the door back and didn't check if it was on straight... aka the sagging door symptom...  

because the door panels will be on in the right spot everytime as there is almost no space to move it about... the clips all fit into holes that are just about big enough... so you can try and move the door card up a bit by removing the bolts than pushing the door card up, and bolt it down in the higher position.. but like i said the movement is about 2mm to 3mm not enough to show a gap like that... so yeah that door is most likely sagging. 

 

you can DIY it as it's ust a few bolts that need slacking door, pushed/pulled up than be bolted down again.. but why do it yourself if you had a bodyshop deal with it and they clearly didn't put it on right? take it back let them sort it since you just noticed it.

I think it is not from door card. I removed and installed this parts many times and I know when it's good and when it's not good. So as you said it is from door sagging. Do we have guide here about door regulation?

 

And form the outside the door strip looks fine. Not as much difference as inside.

yeah that is typical of a sagging door outside looks alright but inside it's off by a few mm...  there should be a how2 look in the how2/DIY section and check the list of all how2's saves you from browsing the lot.
