I would almost guarantee they would baulk at changing it. And in fact, right on cue...I wonder what the sales team's response would be to someone modifying the contract! "Does not compute", I expect.
I've always found it odd that we all use legal specialists (solicitors) to advise us on what is the largest personal purchase that most of us make, relying upon their skills to negotiate a contract on our behalf, and wouldn't dream of unwittingly entering into a contract that removed our rights, yet for the second largest purchase most of us make - a car - there is a presumption that the sales contract presented by the vendor is non-negotiable and set in stone, even when it significantly disadvantages us, as in this case.I asked about modifying the contract. they said no.
If the dealer won't budge on the contract, imo the OP's interests are almost certainly best served by not entering into it at all.
