I was noticing this at our Harrisburg meet and greet. The gaps were all over the map.
Some were quite pronounced
Mine is not the best, but I feel I can live with it.

Mine is consistent across the hood at least, but it's very wide, wider than I would like, but I haven't complained about it to get it fixed yet. I would very much like to have the gap that is shown on the F-Pace in the picture. Mine is about twice that distance.

Exact same for me.

Perhaps we could do well to actually post the measurements?

If you are referring to Jaguar's recommended measures there are none. The instructions just ask techs to measure the flush and gap measurements in mm and report back to Jaguar on an Excel worksheet.

Actually, I meant our own, might be an interesting exercise to see how far off we all are, to fully understand the extent of the problem.

Add mine to the list. The area marked "1" for me sticks out from the vehicle. Very noticeable looking down the hood towards the front but I'll wait until I have to bring it in to get addressed.
