New Egg, Firebox Wobble

Hello All,

You may remember recent post deciding between the Primo and the BGE.  Well I picked up the Large BGE last night and I'm hoping to fire it up tonight!  

I did notice that the firebox has a slight wobble.  I've seen some other posts about this, but I wanted to get some fresh input.  I stopped by the dealer and two of their 3 showroom eggs also had a wobble, but one didn't.  They told me not to worry about it, but of course I'm a bit picky and the wobble is an irritant.  I sent an e-mail to support asking if I should address this and I was hoping for some input from you.  I do need to pull the firebox and make sure it is actually the firebox and not the base of the egg.

So, any input on this?  If it is the firebox, should I try to get it switched?  Or, will this become a non-issue with use (ash, etc.)?  Can you sand or file the high spots?  What would you do?
