Good News/Bad News Sandwich

Hi All,

Delighted to report I collected my new 1.4 16v Multiair 5dr progressive black GP on Friday. Touch wood, i've had none of the reported issues with iphone or ipod integration or any problems with cubby holes being of a poor quality.

Sadly, the car arrived without the leather pack, style pack or visibility pack.

At least they got the colour right I suppose.

Right back to a 10 week factory order with this incorrect car as a 'loan' until my new one arrives.

Re: Good News/Bad News Sandwich

I hope you rejected it as it was not what you ordered. I had the same problem when I bought my car though they were able to tint the windows and paint the calipers and as I was puting my own speakers in the sub wasn't an issue. However they can't retro fit the leather nor the visibility pack. Tell them you want it re ordered and the the correct spec. Out of interest where did you buy it?

Re: Good News/Bad News Sandwich

would try and recoup the admin fees from swapping your insurance from car to car....direct line used to charge 25 every time you changed car on your policy....had an issue with an alfa we bought a few years back, two courtesy cars later it had cost me 75 in admin fees....got it back from lookers though....(avoid lookers garages at all cost )
