Spec change whilst at 1100

Postby Locoblade » Thu Jan 12, 2017 10:13 am

Hi All

Has anyone made spec changes whilst still at 1100 and experienced subsequent delays in build/delivery?

My car is scheduled for build week 6 (Week commencing 6th Feb) for delivery 1st week in March so judging by others on here, should be going to 1200 status any day. I'm having a last minute dilema about whether to add the reversing camera but won't entertain a change if there's even the slightest chance it will affect the build/delivery as mine would qualify for the big road tax increases in April should it slip by a month.

cheers

I made several changes (including adding reversing camera) while at 1100, and didn't affect my estimated build week (week 4)

Cheers, how close were you to your build week when you made the change? Obviously I'm less than 4 weeks away which is the concern, I think if I'd done it before Christmas I wouldn't have thought about it

Made the last change (assisted parking) on 29th Dec and didn't impact build date.

You should be able to ask your dealer to check for any impact before committing to a spec change

I changed at 1200 even when the dealer said it couldn't be done. Entire order was changed effectively but the car came a week earlier than planned.
