Need assistance on sizing for 800 Series Bosch Panel Ready Dishwasher

Hi!We purchased an 800 series Bosch Dishwasher and installed it. It fits perfectly in our opening measuring 23 15/16". We have inset cabinets measuring 34.5". The toe kick is 4" so the actual face frames are 30.5". I would like the panel to line up with the bottom rail, but if I go based on Bosch specs which says the Max length should be 30 1/8", I will have a 3/8" gap on top. Is this normal? Or would you add another 1/8" or 1/4"?

When I ask the cabinet maker to make an inset door, an lets say there is a gap of 3/8" or less on top, should I just have them make the top rail skinnier so that the drawer and door line up the the adjacent cabinets?

Also, what size gap would you choose for the sides? 1/8"?

Thanks for the help! Super excited.
