Dealer has changed price of vehicle before delivery

I'm after some advice and thoughts on an order I have placed for a new BMW X3. The order was placed and New Vehicle Contract signed on 19 December 2012 after agreeing the price detailed on this paperwork.
Yesterday I received a call from my dealer informing me they had made a mistake in the calculations and the price should in fact be higher than quoted and also detailed on previous copies. Obviously this was a surprise for us as our budget and vehicle specification was based on the prices quoted and we are now looking forward to receiving the vehicle early next month.

Has anyone else had experience of this happening in the UK after the contract has been signed, there is no mention on this paperwork about errors etc and I assume both the dealer and me are bound to the sale and prices quoted so I should be protected against the pricing error.

The dealer has requested a meeting with me to discuss on Saturday so i'm gathering information in preparation for this, any thoughts appreciated.
