The price will remain the same - it should say so in the agreement that you signed. Only thing that increases is VAT or road fund tax or both!

All manufacturers have a statement along the lines of being able to change specifications at any time.

That said, when I ordered my Ecosport it turned up as the “newer” spec with less on it then the one I ordered. I rejected it and the dealer reluctantly ordered me the same new spec and paid for the extra optional packs to bring it up to and better than the spec I originally ordered.

They still managed to bodge that one too so I didn’t take delivery. Went elsewhere and got my Puma.

Talk about them making a total mess of it all. I have literally gone through the new price list with a fine toothcomb and any niggles I had I have raised specifically. If it turns up without anything I'm expecting I too will with a very heavy heart reject it. The replaced seats and potentially the changed puddle lights looks to be the only changes, along with the price uplift which I did thankfully avoid.

In my mind if the seats are awful then I'd probably still be within my rights to reject it as they weren't what I ordered.

I'm afraid that's not always the case I don't think. With the Fiesta orders, yes if there was like for like options they did match the spec, but where parts change, such as with the seats they have no quibbles at just changing it. if you got in early enough for them to build your car as a 2021.75 car then you should still get the Recaros. If your car is now scheduled to be built beyond a specific date that Ford have set in their own systems, your order will turn in to the 2022.25 car, and you will receive the Ford Performance seats.

Hi I originally ordered my ST on 19th Oct and signed the paperwork and a few days later they said Ford have now given them a delivery date of end Jan 22 then I added the Performance pack on the 12 Nov so I will just have to see what turns up i suppose, will still chase he dealer though for an answer.

Cheers

Mike

Cheers for that.. That's the nearest gauge to where mine might be in the pile. Ordered exactly 1 month after yours. I suppose there is still half a chance of getting mine in March then.
