Car produced but wrong options still

Is it something to be alarmed about? My car still doesn't show the correct options. The only thing right is the color.

Every single option is shown except rear PDC, DCT, and moonroof. Hopefully this is another wonderful website error.

When you track your car online it should show all the Packages and options on the car.
call your CA to make sure

The website is not only often out of date but does also have omissions. The only thing that was missing in my particular case was the 19" wheels. Your CA has more accurate and more up to date information than the web site for sure. Good luck!

Mine is missing all sorts of things. Should have cold weather package, HD, Satellite radio options, iPod / USB option, PDC, etc. None of those show up. The colors are correct though, and both the Premium and Tech packages show up. I hate to keep bugging my CA, but will call nonetheless to be sure:

Called my CA and he says that all the options I wanted are on the car. Phew.

Still stinks that the website doesn't work properly.

Did you get a VIR? How did he verify that?

I'm guessing he pulled up the VIR. Although, I didn't ask him if he did. I hate having to call him about this since it feels like I'm pestering. Should I call again anyway or just wait a few days and ask again when it's time to be loaded on a ship?

It's your $70k.
I would have verified long before it went into production.

Mine shows EVERY option. I did not order everything..lol. It has the correct color, but thats about it. Interior color is ok, but shows extended, etc, etc, etc...EVERY option. hah.

My print out from my CA is correct though...I guess the OC is just not updated? Who knows. Guess we will both see WTF we get when we get it. lol

I trust my CA that he read off the correct options in the VIR. If he didn't then no sale obviously.

Don't trust your CA, I ordered my car back in June 07 and just found out that my car was delivered with the wrong color interior and trim! He says he input the correct info and the color code was incorrect on the system.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get at least M-DCT and the colors right. I'll post the VIR tomorrow.

It is beyond me.....The Owner's Circle tracking is a total joke. My car is awaiting a vessel...production was finished last week. The Owner's Circle is still all wrong for my car. Well, maybe it isn't, but it aint close to what I ordered, and it aint what's on the order summary from my CA. lol

Hell, maybe the OC is correct, and that is exactly what they built. That would not surprise me either! lol!

Called my CA and he faxed over the VIR: Design/MSRP not sure if there is another screen to show him "as built" or anything but the options look correct. Still keeping my fingers crossed.
