They didn't charge me anything (no Admin fee, no increased cost) but increased my excess

Small problem needing sorting already......, order was specified (amongst other bits) for light headlining and 18 way seats/memory/folding mirrors etc.

AND the factory have built it with only the standard 14 way seats/memory/folding mirrors, and black headlining. :shock:

Been to dealers today to inform/show them, and they agree its cocked up at the factory, so i will call back in tomorrow to sort it out with them,

To be honest i didn't notice the black headlining until i saw a bit of white cotton against it, so i could live with that.

And the seats are pretty good anyway, only noticed that while trying to set it up for my bulk, :lol: (missing is the adjustable bolsters and seat cushion extension adjustment), but, let's see what they can sort out. (I don't really want it dismantling and rewiring just to add 2 functions to the front seats).

I went for yulong white on my xf 300, standard headlining which is black iirc. Only option I added was privacy although the standard spec on xe 300 sport is different to xf.

The same seat issue happened to me.

Took them a year to build me a new car...

Turned out afterwards that a master tech could have retrofitted the 18way seats.

Sorting out a refund/compensation deal at the moment, :) And to be honest i'm now happy with the black headlining as it matches the whole interior, and the seats....i don't think i'll miss the 2 missing adjustments, i rarely used them on the portfolio i had first, its adjusted now and very comfy it is to, and it fits like a glove. :D

Been over to Matlock and back today, all A and B roads, up and down, twisty and damp, not a foot wrong, and it did 30.7 mpg, well chuffed. :D

And that is all that matters! Enjoy your awesome car, don't worry about insignificant minor niggles.

Love your car Bob, I'd have had red as well if the wife didn't stick her oar in ;)
