If it's not broken, don't fix it!
Is the sunroof aligned with the metal part behind it? Or is the gap between the sunroof and the side bar too big?
Both conditions are possible, but if there are no functional issues, I would suggest living with it as is, since adjusting it is a delicate job that requires know how and care.
Aligning the sunroof with the M-Segment involves releasing loads of screws and letting the sunroof float to its natural position. Its risky and it involves disassembling the inner trim plus a number of functional items.
Adjusting the side bar is also tricky since usually the problem is that the factory ran out of adjustment when building the roof.
What year is your EOS?

Is there a problem or does it just look untidy.

I've got a 2010 Eos which I bought from a dealer second-hand and the sunroof creaks. They have taken it in twice under warranty and have now identified a faulty part that will be replaced.

I thought they might give me the brush off saying that it wasn't covered. Could it be your dealer?
