    In May I took delivery of a new Burstner ixeo 55 and according to the brochure a flatscreen holder came as standard, however there wasn't one on mine so I asked the dealer where it was?, to which he replied that Burstner had made a mistake with brochure and you don't get one.
    He says that they will fit one for cost price approx £190.
    So is it ok for Burstner to advertise items as standard then claim to have made a mistake.

    sounds bad to me, but worse for £190 I would expect a bracket and a TV

    I suspect there will be a cop out clause in the brochure T's and C's

    There usually is a get out clause in brochures such as indication only and specification liable to change without notice.

    My Pilote had the opposite problem, they had replaced the ordinary TV bracket with a very expensive sliding one which we didn't like and replaced with a cheaper one. Now gathering dust in the garage

    I would have thought the dealer could have afforded to supply you with the holder as a goodwill gesture then take the matter up with Burstner at a later date.
    Did you get any discount off the screen price when you bought it?

    You should ask Shifty, he's an expert on all things Burstner, a real fan and there's nothing he won't be able to sort for you. :Rofl1:

    I have sent a message to Burstner asking them to confirm that the brochure is incorrect. I await their reply.

    Received an email from Burstner and apparently the brochure was incorrect, however as a goodwill gesture they will pay for the dealer to supply and fit the flatscreen holder. Excellent outcome and so quick.

    Hi, I would say that unless it was stated in the brochure or there was a footnote to the effect that, for example, this is not available in the UK, then a call to Trading Standards in in order.

    It an item in a shop is labelled with the incorrect price, then the purchaser may buy it at the marked price. IMHO, then if an item is described as having a certain specification by the manufacturer, then the purchaser may reasonably expect to get what he/she believes they are paying for.

    Do not let the dealer weasel his way out of this, Trading Standards are your friend. The dealer should fit the bracket and then he should persue the manufacturer for the cost.
