Maybe it's a deliberate policy for a time when supply chains were already disrupted even before the war in Ukraine. By leaving things 'vague' and confusing it means they can effectively change the spec at will and argue that it was never stated in the spec or your order that your car would have certain lights. And if the 'standard' equipment can be changed so rapidly, they can also say that what you expected or thought you would get was not the spec 'at the time of order'.

It rather puts the onus on to the customer to request a detailed and committed specification of standard equipment and selected options as part of the order process. That would allow customers to say the car was not built/delivered as ordered and so reject the car, but facing long delivery times and supply shartages, most would just shrug their shoulders.

That's a good strategy to bear in mind before committing to an order. I assume if a dealer refuses to provide a detailed specification of the car you want to order, their intentions are not in good faith.
