Looks like they may have old stock scattered all over the country

Just checked out Arnold Clark  website, not only do they show the advert you copied over but they state xenon lights and electronic dipping mirror in the advertising video. Not sure if you can download or copy the video , but this would make excellent viewing at Trading Standards if the car doesn`t arrive as described and advertised.

Been in talks with another dealer and if they can do a deal will be pulling the order from Arnold Clark
Poor service and it looks like deliberately misleading adverts and a fight from start to finish to get what is advertised on their website

Had to zoom in a little, but that picture does seem to show xenons.

Trading standards will be the port of call if they try to get out of returning my deposit

If your prepared to travel.....Research Garage Nuneaton  have got a good following on here.   I`ve used Rockingham cars Northampton for all 3 of my Abarths ,
Maybe give them both a ring to what offers they have on just now.

Where are you based ?
Derbyshire
Blimey, and you went to A C in Salford? We went to Richard Corts in Bury, very happy with their service even if the show room needs a serious updating!

I do hope you get what you thought you were ordering, but is a lesson for us all, the configurator is a good thing and should let you know what is standard and what is not.

So I cancelled my order with Arnold Clark and I should have my new competizione 180 in Monza yellow with xenons dipping rear view mirror and full leather interior before the end of the month
I wouldn’t deal with Arnold Clark if you paid me
I have bought my new car from Stoneacre just down the road from me in chesterfield couldn’t have been easier and have got a better spec car for the same deal
Just got to wait for it to arrive now

Hi Evo30.
Good to hear your all sorted now, and great to know you`ve now had a better deal.
Just make sure the BMC filter and Alloy fuel cap are fitted before you pick up the car, it seems that some dealerships are still not fitting these parts before collection.
