Do the normals on the face shield match? It looks as though the bump is inverted on the mirrored side, and the seam appears because of the bump's simulation of shading depth being reversed.

it looks to me as if the bump map on on the mirrored side is reversed. Perhaps, the faces on the mirrored side need to have normals reversed. I don't know. Check normals by going, display>polygon componants>normals. If thats not the problem, perhaps it is the hard edge between the two halves. Select all the joining vertices, and merge them then select the the center edges and soften them. Hope that helps.

hi guys
nothing of it helped im sorry.All the normals are facing outwards perpendicular as they shall and the halfes are merged together and the edges are softened where the two halfs touched each other.....i hope and think that its just my video card that makes some troubles.....maybe i have to change the texture resolution quality or how its called....
You see on the top image that the bump map is simuliced very well maybe its an issue of distance and video crad...

okay, how about unlocking the vertex normals then resetting the face normals?

To unlock the vertex normal... select edit polygons-->normals-->set vertex normals-->option box. From the option, check unlock vertex normals and apply. The vertex normals are similar to face normals, in that the specify the X, Y, Z, orientation for a vertex.

Once you've unlocked the vertex normal, try resetting the face normal again.

Actually, Dae was having the exact same problem, check his thread out, all he did was reverse the faces on half the model

Just flip the uv for that side in the texture editor and then sew both halves together .
