ha - you are right! I failed the first IQ test. Now let's see if I fail the second one, as I attempt to re-align this woofer/ring ensemble....
You aren't the only one, I've bought second hand products years old that still had that film on. Eg one of those Samsung DVD player/amp all in ones, the entire top panel looked shocking and cheap - pulled off that protective film and it was mint underneath lol

Randomly ended up here and found that the top woofers on both my R7s have the same misalignment. Do you mind share how you take off the trim rings? I am not sure if it is a good idea to insert a trim removal tools into the gap.
You could try carefully using fingernails to pull it up; on some B&W's, the trim ring is just like a grill frame with push pins. Be careful not to lever against the driver cone or slip.
