    I'm just stunned they manage to put together each car with all the right options as there's so many of the damn things I doubt any two cars are the same.

    I wrote a list of all the things to check for when I picked mine up, i.e. the easiest way of identifying each option was present, and the list was about 20 lines long. I was actually surprised (pleasantly) when they were all there, even the GSM phone prep which was added at the 11th hour - so late in fact that they had to ring the factory and it pushed the build back one week :)

    I'm sure it will all be fine - presumably you're getting it delivered on March 1st on an 07 plate?

    When I had a factory tour a few years ago, soon after they started production the the 8P, I was impressed by the way they are actually put together. On the final assembly line, computers control the way each car's components arrive at the line. Going down the line can be both 3-door and 5-door, different colours, different engines, different options and for different markets, LHD and RHD, all at the same time. The chap who was showing us round did say that when the line first starts up with a new model some very strange cars can be built but it soon gets sorted before any cars are released for sale. He also said the actual line workers work in teams and take great pride in the quality standards produced by their team.
