<p style=”text-align: left;”>Hi,</p>
just after a bit of advice please. I’ve ordered my next car on the scheme – a BMW X1 in mineral grey with black interior but have been fretting about my choice pretty much since I ordered it (Sept 10th).
Whilst Mineral grey is a lovely colour, I just prefer the Storm Bay grey paint and a lighter interior. When I was placing my order I told the BMW saleswoman this and although she agreed, she felt that the Mineral grey and black interior were more practical as I’d be ‘forever cleaning inside and outside’
I do agree with her comments about the interior but I do like to look after my cars and do keep them clean so this wouldn’t have been too much of a hardship.
Anyway, I am quite easily persuaded in general with a lot of things since my stroke and obviously just agreed with her and ordered the car.
Since then, I have even had sleepless nights about it (a bit dramatic, I know) but I decided to speak to her about this. I called her last Monday about changing the colour and she asked me to put it in an email so she’d remember to change it.
I emailed her as agreed and she said that when she’s tried to change it, the BMW database won’t allow her to change it (at the moment) as all the settings are ‘locked down’ while BMW arrange their build allocation slots. She said she will keep trying when she is in work but can’t promise anything as it might be too late now to make the changes it want.
Does this sound correct? Is she being 100% honest with me? I’m not sure she is as it’s only been a month and I worry that she might be annoyed with me that I’ve decided to change my order? I don’t know what to think but I suppose I just have to wait and see what she comes back with.
Can anyone offer any advice please? I know I’m a pain and should have just stuck to my original choice of Storm Bay grey with Oyster interior 🤦🏻♀️!
