550xi on order


I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting this question in the right place. I ordered a 2014 550xi M Sport w/ Alpine White and the black/ivory nappa interior. Because I wanted the optional Sycamore wood trim the order is considered an "individual" order and therefore I cannot add or subtract and any additional options. The cars status is 111 and is not scheduled for production until last week in Jan '14. I wanted to add the Adaptive LED lighting but dealer says no changes can be made because it is considered an "individual" special car. Seems odd that I'm willing to pay more and even wait longer than normal but dealer says no mods are allowed on individual orders! Anyone else hear or know about this policy? Thanks for your help.

If not changeable, is the order still cancellable? If so, just cancel and order a new one the way you want it.

I added LEDs a month after placing the order, but I didn't go individual route. Seems absurd to me that they charge as much as they do for individual options and then have the nerve to lock the order. I would think if anything they would make more of an effort to make sure you got exactly what you want.

LEDs are well worth it btw. Totally distinguishes the LCIs from previous F10s
