PS: The sheet titled "ORDER" on which I signed has all the correct options.
Yep, pretty irritating. The dealer can always check on your car's true status, but don't pester them TOO much, and many of them proactively notify you anyway for events like your car going into production, getting onto a ship, etc. There's a sticky around here somewhere that even shows how to track the ship your car is on as it crosses the pond. Then of course your dealer will call you when it arrives on the lot.

Weird, happened to me too, but I caught it before I signed off on the sheet, and since my allocation hadn't yet gone into production by then, it was fine. I guess the dealers just make sure the MSRP shown on the order matches the expected MSRP based on your options, so no-cost options sometimes get missed.
