Im so surprised - I ordered mine 30-9-20 for old price - then on 7-10-20 informed Dealer following test drive I now had better understanding of Climatronic option & wanted to cancel it as thought unnecessary - all done through email he simply phoned it to VW then sent me the new order price confirmation with that option deleted - I really think your dealer is wrong telling you that as they havent even got a build week yet. I was told when I first ordered & asked if there was any slight variation you could alter & Ive seen posts on here that state the same - crikey youve just ordered a £50k vehicle !
Did you get the 10% discount on full price? I'm wondering if it's because I got that?

I know I am wondering the same..
Ask to speak to the Dealer Principal.

A lot of people make slight tweaks to their orders, it doesn't mean you suddenly pay a higher price. They just have to fiddle their numbers in the VW system, they just dream up the prices anyway!

Give them a call :thumb

Thanks, which dealer out of interest? I ordered with Liverpool
Well that doesn't surprise me, we had a terrible experience with Liverpool. Which salesperson you deal with seems to have as much bearing on everything as to which dealership you use. Definitely get in touch with the DP.

Thanks all, spoke to someone else today and they were fine with it..after speaking to another department they agreed to add to spec without £1k price increase.

Yes they had to get special authorisation for me to give them £270 more for !!!

Oh dear, who did you deal with ? What was the problem?

We were ready to go ahead and order, so on recommendation and watching all the Cali Chris videos, we phoned Liverpool and made a specific appointment so that we would be looked after properly. We drove 2 hours to get there but James the salesman didn't seem very interested, even though we said we would be ready to order that day. The system for PCP quotes was down so we ending up leaving without ordering one. He said he would phone or email the finance quotes to us in the next day or so. That was about 6 weeks ago and we haven't heard a thing back at all. In the meantime we went elsewhere. Very poor. A complete waste of 6 hours and fuel.

I know, it feels like they are doing you a favour ordering one for you ! We had James, he was very pleasant but wasn't bothered at all if we ordered or not !

Excellent news, really pleased for you! You shouldn't have had to have that hassle though, the amount you're spending.

I have the front opening and I find it useful especially in summer as i can leave the canvas a bit opened during the day right at the top, to let the warm air escape. Combined with the air-safe (the hook for the tailgate) which allows for colder air to come in, it provides a good way to keep the interior of the Cali cooler.
It also makes it a bit easier should you ever want to remove the upstairs mattress if you want to unzip the cover to wash it.

Loved our front opening canvas even when using the van as an office for a change of scenery. I think my next van will be a Coast and would definitely spec this option.

It’s bizarre! Even if they are selling loads at the moment you’d have thought that more easy sales equals more commission and they’d be hungry for it.

Glad you got the right outcome. You have spurned me on question our dealer to why they changed our deal after we signed the contract.Not holding much hope though.

A friend who works in a dealership told me he had targets set to get additional comission. This was a couple of years ago though, so may not be true now
They are given targets on sales, % targets on finance and %targets on the autoglym.
The risk for them making another sale is that you will refuse the finance and the autoglym and so therefore dropping their percentage on those targets
Once they have met all 3 targets there is no need to sell any more.
