I have the same problem (with the same car as yours). There's too much road noise from the driver's side door and if you look outside when it's closed, the door is slightly proud of the side pillar.

However, my problem is that even if I've loosened the Torx bolts, the striker plate/catch doesn't move, so I'm not convinced there is any adjustment that can be made.

With previous Fords I've owned, the striker plate can slide back and forth once the bolts are loose. It's seems not with the later stuff (:
