The dealer is supplying a car that isn't what the customer ordered so hopefully in this case the dealer will sort it out.
If the factory made a cock up then it falls back to the dealer who is supplying a car that isn't as ordered and the dealer and the factory can argue about it.

In most of the cases I've seen of this it's the dealer who has made the cock-up in the order.
My 300 sport was ordered with 18 way seats and light headlining, but it arrived to me with 14 way seats and black headlining, (std for the model), the order sheet that was sent to the factory shows 18 way, and light, so my cockup was at the factory end, we (the dealer and I) came to an agreement of the difference in price etc. refunded ok, otherwise it was rejection or replace all the internals, i think the dealer (Chester) had some choice words with the factory.

Ps. don't let them know, but i actually prefer the black roof lining and the 14 way seats, so all was not lost.

Just been sent images of my new car and I selected the gloss black vaneer option instead of the normally selected etched aluminium option the R Sport comes with.

Am I right in thinking my car looks like it hasn’t come with it as expected ? Am I right in thinking that option effects the panels around the door speakers and follows around the dash to the other door ?

Thanks

James
...worth mentioning - photos can also be misleading - black can look grey in a photo depending on the lighting!

Have a look at his second photo on page 1.
It's as grey as the greyest thing at a grey contest.
